Legislature Touts Education Support
Cheyenne, Wyoming – Wyoming legislators are pointing at a report to prove that lawmakers have taken the issues of school funding seriously. The Nelson A. Rockefeller institute of Government released a report saying that Wyoming had the second highest growth in per-pupil spending between 1997 and 2002. Senate President Hank Coe says the legislature has worked incredibly hard to fund schools.
House Education Chairman Jeff Wasserburger adds that rising test scores validate the investment in students.
