A member of State Superintendent Cindy Hill’s staff is hoping to replace her. Sheryl Lane is one of three Republican’s running for the right to face Democrat Mike Ceballos in the November general election.
Lane is a former classroom teacher and while she likes the fact that legislators are looking at improving school and teacher accountability, she does not like the way they are going about it. She says they have developed state accountability measures, something she opposes.
A former classroom teacher and former Wyoming Department of Education employee has announced that she will run for State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Republican Jillian Balow says she has four goals.
“Enhancing local control in the school districts; increasing collaboration across the state with multiple stakeholders; empowering parents to be more involved with education; and I’m also tackling the political issues that have dominated education in Wyoming.”
Wyoming Democrat Mike Ceballos has announced he’ll be running for Superintendent of Public Instruction. Ceballos is a business man without direct experience in education, but he’s been involved in various education foundations and sits on several education-related boards. He says his skill-set is appropriate for the job.
