True equity in Santa Fe Public Schools has never been achieved. Some schools are fully staffed, while others are missing eight core subject teachers. Standardized test and achievement scores are all over the board, some scoring high while others are barely making it by.

One of Santa Fe's only solutions the school district has come up with is to close certain schools that have less students and are underperforming.

Leah Cantor, a born and raised Santa Fean and a staff writer at the Reporter did an entire cover story just on this subject. I'm here to talk to her for Season 2, Episode 12 of Reported, the Santa Fe Reporter's podcast digging into the stories and investigations that inspire and affect our lives as New Mexicans.

This is the very last episode of Season 2, and we're excited about taking a week off to bring you awesome new audio stories we know you're going to love.
