2022 Survey of the States – New Mexico


  • New Mexico now has statewide personal finance standards, high schools are required to implement these standards, and personal finance content integrated into other courses is required to graduate.
  • Upon revision of its Social Studies standards, the Public Education Department announced the addition of personal finance standards, which must be implemented in full by school districts by 2023. The personal finance standards will most likely be embedded in the required economics coursework, but all school districts must give instruction on the personal finance curriculum in some form whether via a standalone course or integrated elsewhere in a student’s social studies graduation requirements.
