governor-appointed Director of Education

The Wyoming State Board of Education met in a teleconference today. Board members have been tasked with finding an executive search firm to assist in recruiting candidates for the newly-created Director of the Department of Education position. The appointed director will take over many of the duties previously entrusted to the elected State Superintendent of Public Instruction.  

As the bill that would take power away from the State Superintendent gains traction in the Legislature, Wyoming Public Radio’s Luke Hammons took to the streets in Laramie to ask the public what they think.
