16 schools across New Mexico are in such horrible shape they need to be torn down and very soon.

It was unveiled to members of the Public School Capital Outlay Oversight Task Force a list of the top 50 schools with construction needs. Out of those 50, 16 need to be torn down.

This also could cause some financial challenges in the future due to the volatile oil and gas market. There are far more projects needed done than there are financial funds available.
