Sources for Statistics Cited in the HB0166 Videos

The Heritage Foundation State Report Card: Wyoming

“Wyoming ranks #44 for education choice, dropping one spot since last year, as lawmakers in other states expanded education choice options in 2023, while officials in Wyoming did not. Wyoming could do much more to expand education choice. Wyoming generally respects the autonomy of homeschooling families. Wyoming could improve its ranking by enacting a K–12 education savings account (ESA) policy, making it easier for charter schools to open and operate, and giving families a choice of traditional public schools beyond their assigned school.”

Center for Educational Reform Parent Power Index: Wyoming

In their most recent report, CER’s Parent Power Index ranked Wyoming Schools at #47 overall and #48 for school choice (education freedom). Read their summary below:

“The Cowboy State hit the education choice trail this year, moving up three spots on the National Charter School Ranking by adding a new, more independent charter authorizer – YEEE HAAA! But parents around the state – some who are very disadvantaged – have very little power to choose the education their child deserves. They could stand an eruption as plentiful as a gush at Old Faithful.”
