“It’s complicated!” That is how one of our legislators – who has advanced degrees in scientific fields – recently described our K-12 education funding model. It was a remarkable understatement, made during debate about reducing the cost of the system. We face huge projected funding shortfalls which require cost reductions.
Wyoming’s Joint Interim Education Committee and Select Committee on Education Accountability both met on November 14th and 15th. The Legislative Service Office opened the agenda on the 14th with a fiscal update including a forecast out to 2021-22 which was grim, to say the least. After that reminder, the committees continued conversations on topics from their respective prior meetings.
