Representative Liz Thomson selected for national early learning fellowship
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - State Representative Elizabeth “Liz” Thomson has been accepted into the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Early Learning Fellows Program.
“I am absolutely honored that I have been chosen to participate in this competitive program,” said Thomson. “Funding high-quality early learning programs statewide is essential to improving New Mexico’s education system. I thank the National Conference of State Legislatures for giving me the opportunity to acquire the skills needed to craft legislation to solve this crisis.”
The Early Learning Fellows Program brings together legislators and legislative staff from all over the country to work together and expand their knowledge of early childhood education. The program aims to equip experienced and emerging legislative leaders with tools such as background research and bill drafting ideas that will allow them to develop early learning policies that will work in their state.
“Our children have been suffering for far too long, and I am excited to apply what I learn as part of this fellowship to create a system that will set up New Mexico’s kids for success,” added Thomson.
