Governor Matt Mead has signed into law a bill that strips powers from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction. In turn Superintendent Cindy Hill has filed suit, claiming that the new law is unconstitutional.
Mead also announced that Community College Director Jim Rose will serve as the interim Director of Education.
Mead said he did a lot of soul-searching before agreeing to sign the bill.
“I don’t think anybody would view this as a celebration, I think we would view it as a duty we must go forward on for the kids in Wyoming,” Mead says.
