Who ever heard of a football team not improving by competing? Practice makes perfect, but perfect gets better through competition. Competition reveals unknown flaws, generates new ideas and improves execution of old methods. Our K-12 education system needs improvement as Wyoming Liberty Group has written previously. Assuming our schools want to get better, maybe competition is part of the answer.
What do we do when we encounter a luxurious buffet but are on a diet? We carefully take only the permitted amount of each allowed item, right? And then we consciously take a smidgen more of each. Soon the plate is overloaded (and maybe we go back for seconds – or thirds!) Is that what’s happened in Wyoming K-12 education over the last decade?

Article V of the United States Constitution has attracted interest lately as more people have become frustrated with Washington, D.C., and with standard politics. Article V sets out the process for amending the Constitution. The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief introduction to the U.S. Constitution's processes for amending it. It takes no position on any of the many proposed amendments, and no position on which process to use to amend the Constitution.
Wyoming’s constitution mandates K-12 education be universal, free of charge and efficient 1. However, the concept of efficiency is so inconvenient it was scarcely mentioned in the course of more than twenty years of litigation about K-12 funding. The result is the mammoth and terrifically expensive education system we now have.
CHEYENNE, WY- OnMessage, Inc. recently conducted a statewide survey on behalf of the Wyoming Liberty Group. The survey consisted of 600 likely voters and was stratified to reflect historic voter trends. The poll focused on the ongoing fiscal challenges facing Wyoming and asked voters to consider a variety of questions centered around possible tax increases, government transparency and waste, health care and education issues.
