Laramie, Wy – The top educator in Wyoming sent off his recommendations for how to improve the federal No Child Left Behind Law today. Congress is getting ready to rework the law and State Superintendent Jim McBride came up with several proposed improvements. One idea he has is to change the student tests. McBride says he wants an exam that measures the growth of a child, rather than if they meet a definition of proficient. He says the current way of doing things is one size fits all. McBride would also like it if the law was more flexible when dealing with small schools.
Laramie, Wy – A legislative interim committee may review proposed changes in the state's lobbyist disclosure laws this year.
