Disappointment Lingers On Court Funding Decision
Laramie, WY – Wyoming Schools Superintendent Trent Blankenship admits he would have preferred the state Supreme Court sign off on the legislature's school finance plan for both funding and construction. The court decided against that last month, setting the stage for more lawsuits this year. Blankenship wants education funding out of the court's jurisdiction. He says retaining jurisdiction means lawmakers will be reluctant to fine-tune the funding mechanisms further. Blankenship believes the overall capital construction plan is good, even though he has expressed concern about the state tearing down perfectly good school buildings.
