Dr. Max Luft, Interim Executive Director
During the past 50 years my primary pleasure has been to enjoy my family and raise four fantastic children. To support this endeavor I initially taught math and science to mid school through graduate school students in four states. In addition to direct instruction I worked as the Director of Testing for Albuquerque Public Schools and for a federally funded educational laboratory, owned a private educational consulting business that evaluated 500 federal and state funded programs in schools over a 10 state area, and started three educational services agencies, two of which were public entities and the third a non-profit.
