Laramie, Wy – Students in Wyoming schools have access to more computers than their peers in almost every other state. The group Education Week put out a report on technology in schools this week. It gives Wyoming a grade of B overall for technology, but an A for access to technology. The report notes on average there is a computer for every two and a half children in this state.
An area Wyoming is lacking is the creation of a virtual school. Or one where all classes are taught on the internet. The head of education, Jim McBride, says that's just not something school districts are asking for, though they do want more online classes available.
McBride says they are trying to improve technology in Wyoming schools even further. And he says it is helping to boost student achievement.
