Wyoming Education Reform Compromise
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — State lawmakers have approved a bill that would rework Wyoming's effort at K-12 education reform.
There had been some disagreement between the House and Senate over teacher accountability provisions in the Senate File 8.
The House version of the bill had removed a section requiring the development of a state teacher accountability system.
The two sides agreed to restored teacher accountability to the bill but discuss teacher accountability during the interim.
Following the conference committee, the bill was approved by a vote of 26-3 in the Senate and 40-13 in the House. It now goes to Gov. Matt Mead.
