A Wyoming legislative committee has been looking to trim education spending out of what is called the school funding model. A Denver-based consulting firm is in the process of reviewing the model to determine how much actually needs to be spent on education in the state.

It presented some initial findings this week. Wyoming Public Radio’s education reporter Tennessee Watson sat down with Campbell County District #1 Superintendent Boyd Brown and Converse County District #1 Superintendent Paige Fenton Hughes to get their reaction to what they’ve heard so far.

A draft report detailing ways to implement best practices and efficiencies in education is expected from consultants in mid-December.
