A slew of legal cases spanning two decades has been the most powerful force in creating Wyoming's K-12 public education system. These cases have led to the "Dictatorial Behemouth" Wyoming now has as it's education system. With court ordered rules and requirements and continual legislative mandates, Wyoming lives under a monster of its own making.
Continuing from Part 1 of their conversation, "Is Education Litigation Getting in the Way of Education?" listen in as Bob Nelson and Boyd Wiggam talk with Amy Edmonds about possible solutions to this behemouth in K-12 education.
Sometimes in government there comes an idea that is terribly, terribly important to our lives but is packaged in such an unapproachable title many people fail to realize its importance - case in point, extra territorial jurisdiction. Representative government is the foundation of our country, we vote for those we give the authority to represent us in all matters of government, including taxation and regulation over our lives and property. Without this form of representative government we would live in tyranny. Listen in as Boyd Wiggam talks with Amy Edmonds about why extra territorial jurisdiction is something we should all care about because it strikes at the very heart of representative government.
