Report Is Critical Of Wyoming Department Of Education
A report by consultants hired by the Legislature gives the Wyoming Department of Education poor marks in implementing state education reforms.
The report says the agency has failed in some of its responsibilities and hindered other entities involved in the state's initiative to better prepare its public school students for college and careers.
The report blames much of the agency's failings on loss of too many key personnel in the last two years.
State schools Superintendent Cindy Hill says the report is wrong and her agency is handling its duties. She says it's part of an agenda to make her elected office an appointed position.
The Select Committee on Statewide Education Accountability approved drafting legislation to reassign some duties from the agency to other entities involved in the reform effort.
