House Panel Passes Bill Tweaking School Funding

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A legislative committee has approved a bill that would tweak Wyoming's school funding model after some members argued that the model isn't the reason the state has failing schools. The House Education Committee approved House Bill 127 Friday and sent it to the full House.

The committee's chairman, Republican state Representative Matt Teeters of Lingle, says lawmakers need to identify which schools are failing. He says legislation moving through the state Senate would set up an accountability system to identify poorly performing schools and
fix them.
