Amy Edmonds speaks with KGAB’s Gary Freeman about education in Wyoming. Is Wyoming truly getting what it pays for when it comes to public education? Wyoming would be better off looking at Education Savings Accounts as a way to save taxpayers money and strengthen parental choice. Listen in as they talk about this and other education related topics.
Amy Edmonds spoke with Chuck Gray on his radio show Tuesday and discussed why Education Savings Accounts will help improve the state's budget woes and provide much needed school choice options throughout the state. Education Savings Accounts are funded through a voluntary tax credit and then awarded to means tested Wyoming families and would provide $8000 per child for their education. Wyoming currently spends over $16,000 per child on public education. This plan would provide a savings of half that cost. Listen as Amy and Chuck discuss the details.
Wyoming is no stranger to the ugliness of the school choice battle. When it comes to the state monopoly over education, parents are almost always the losers. Currently, local school districts are the only body with the authority under the law to approve an independent public charter school. These elected school boards have been resistant to almost every attempt by parents and teachers to start charter schools in the cowboy state. . After all, why would they want to create competition for themselves?
