Governor Gordon’s Education Initiative Releases Results from Statewide Survey

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon’s K-12 education advisory group has released a report summarizing feedback it received from Wyoming residents interested in education in the state. According to information released from the Governor’s Office, there were more than 7,000 state residents that participated in the online survey. Participants highlighted both the perceived strengths of the state’s education system, as well as areas of opportunity. The online survey was administered by Gordon’s Reimagining and Innovating the Delivery of Education Advisory Group.

STEM subjects, learning outcomes and expectations and class content and structure were themes that respondents said the state was doing a good job of preparing students for the future. Areas that could be improved upon included class content and structure, learning outcomes and expectations and preparing students with life skills. A common theme expressed was a belief that one way to improve education is to spend resources, and to allocate them appropriately.

The Governor noted that the survey is an early part of the work of the RIDE Advisory group. The information and input provided will be built upon and further expanded during the community listening sessions, with a goal of developing policy proposals that will address some of the needs identified.

The Executive Summary and complete results from the survey, along with additional information about the upcoming listening sessions may be found on the RIDE Advisory group website,
