F. Chris Garcia: Helping Reform Education

In order to reform education one must be committed to making a change fundamentally. One instructor dedicated to this task was the leader of the New Mexico State Youth Political Caucus Workshop on Ethnic Politics and Youth and is a proponent for quality educational opportunities. He was a member of the University of New Mexico faculty for more than 40 years, teaching Political Science and serving as the institution’s President during the 2002 academic year.

He has also been an integral part of several organizations within the Albuquerque community, working with groups focused on the improvement of Albuquerque education. He was a member of the Albuquerque Good Government Group and has enjoyed the opportunity to work with the Education Task Force and Citizenship Education Network for over five years. His 40-year career in education has been marked by his dedication to improving the quality of education for all students in New Mexico.
