PINEDALE – A national report rating fourth and eighth grade student progress shows Wyoming’s students continue to outperform the nationwide average. The Nation’s Report Card, released Thursday, compares reading and math achievement of elementary and secondary school students and compiles National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) scores.
Wyoming students scored at or above the national average for public schools in both reading and math. Rich Crandall, director of the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE), took the results as an indicator of the state’s commitment to success.
“I, along with many parents and students, are grateful for Wyoming educators who continue to work hard to improve our academic results,” Crandall stated in a news release. “These NAEP scores are just another indication that we are headed in the right direction.”
Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill was equally pleased with the state’s results.
