The Wyoming Education Association (WEA) says public input is key when it comes to deciding what's best for students.

WEA President Kathy Vetter says the unique thing about Wyoming is that the state does reach out and asks the public for input on education standards.

"Both our Legislature and our State Board of Education have done a very good job of listening to the public and continuing to have public meetings on all the different aspects of education," said Vetter.

"I'm very proud of them for thinking of students first and ensuring that every student in Wyoming gets a great public education," Vetter added.

Vetter says each state is allowed to set their own standards and she believes Wyoming has a good system in place.
