We recently overheard an opinion that Washington D.C.’s K-12 schools have had the greatest improvement in National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) scores of any jurisdiction in the U.S. in recent years. We’ve also heard Wyoming legislators heap praises on Wyoming’s school system for its improved NAEP scores. Let’s compare them, shall we?
The purpose of Wyoming’s K-12 education system, according to the Wyoming Supreme Court, is to provide education that is “the best we can do” as well as “unsurpassed” and “visionary” A growing body of evidence shows that those characteristics are achieved, primarily, by having great teachers.
