Education Accountability Measure Supported, Yet Still Unclear

Mar 6, 2012

The Wyoming House of Representatives passed a much-debated education accountability measure. 

Wyoming Education Association President Kathryn Valido is optimistic about the bill, but she still isn’t sure what it will do for education.

“That’s the million dollar question, I really don’t know what it’s going to do,” says Valido. “I do know there are some things that we are a little cautious about.  We still are hearing a little too much about testing, testing, testing and not enough about being creative, thinking skills, that whole side of education.”

The legislation is the intended to be the first step in determining whether students are performing and how a particular district, school and teacher is doing in educating students.
