SF8 (full bill HERE)

What’s the skinny here?

Basically, SF8 continues the death march of freedom for school districts through more work on “accountability”. The state will take on the role of making certain that state standards are linked all the way down to the district level through reviews, or audits of our school districts. The audits will examine:

  • Curriculum maps (now just a minute, we were told by Common Core proponents that curriculum was always a “local” decision!)
  • Assessments (isn’t this a local decision too? We already have a state test…)
  • Graduation Requirements

Districts that are found to be lacking in any of these areas will be “counseled” into compliance. So exactly what “control” will be left to local districts? What color to paint the bathrooms?

Thank you for your dedication to advocating for local control and a truly quality education for Wyoming students!
