Since New Mexico schools, exclusive of private schools and higher institutions, spend $135,000 each year for insurance premiums, considerable thought might well be given to the question whether or not this money is wisely spent. The value of insurance is no longer seriously questioned, but as yet few public officials or school administrators seem to recognize that it should be purchased as economically as possible, consistent with good business practices and safety.
The problem undertaken in this study is to discover the practices of New Mexico school boards in the handling of insurance in public school property.
