If some states have much higher science standards, why would Wyoming drop to the level of the NGSS? June 8, 2015
Last week I wrote about free speech in public education and how one community in Wyoming (Cody) is up in arms, neighbor fighting neighbor, over the eminent purchase of a K-8 reading curriculum.
What in the world could get folks so worked up that they would start calling one another racists and bigots? What is in this curriculum?
In what can only be seen as a very strange case in Cody, WY, a small group of parents and public school teachers have sent out a letter to the local elected school board demanding their fellow citizens be denied the right to participate in a proposed public hearing.
The entire episode centers on a decision soon to be made by the school board to purchase a number of reading curriculums for grades K-7 at a cost of around $200,000 to the district taxpayers.

Last week I wrote about why state lawmakers should enact real school choice measures in Wyoming sooner than later.
While I included in my blog all of the many studies seen in the school choice movement over the past decade that show real educational successes when parents are given choices for their children’s education, my main conclusion was this:
“…the reality of why school choice is needed is simple; public education continues to plot a failing course towards complete government centralization from the top down, and complete learning uniformity nationwide. This course is out of step with what parents want and what is best for children — and with what is best for America.”
