Gordon Creates 10-Member Panel To Help “Re-imagine” K-12 Education


        Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has created a 10-person advisory committee and tasked it with re-imagining the state’s K-12 education system. 

       Gordon, a Republican, first mentioned the initiative last month after the state Legislature adjourned its regular session without resolving a $300 million deficit in education funding

      He says none of the members of the Reimagining and Innovating the Delivery of Education Committee represent specific education-focused interest groups. Two of them are current members of the legislature. 

      The panel will gather input from residents on what they want the education system to include, but it’s not clear how the work will be used. The committee’s first meeting will be next month.
