State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow will run unopposed in the November general election. She’s already defined an agenda for her second term that includes implementing computer science, strengthening measures for post-secondary readiness and addressing school safety and security.
Balow said she’s confident that education will receive strong support from both Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Throne and Republican candidate Mark Gordon.
“Luckily I’ve had the opportunity to work with both Mary Throne and Mark Gordon on a number of issues, and a number of education issues as well,” said Balow. “I don’t see any issues with working together going forward.”
Balow said it’s her job to make sure that there’s an education agenda that is relevant to the governor, the legislature and families across Wyoming.
