In a report on the status of Wyoming’s schools released last week, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill says that the Legislature has overstepped its authority when it comes to education issues in the state.
Hill says lawmakers have used their responsibility for funding K-12 education as an excuse to manage it.
“The legislature has the power of the purs
e,” says Hill. “Yes, they’re responsible for funding, but not all of the decisions that are related.”
