(Wyoming Tribune Eagle, 9/11/21) Wyoming’s State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jillian Balow showed her full support Friday morning for legislation designed to fight back against critical race theory in state schools. She was alongside state Sen. Ogden Driskill, R-Devils Tower, and the Civic Transparency Act’s creator, and co-sponsor Senate President Dan Dockstader, R-Afton. They stood in front of the state superintendent’s office inside the Capitol to introduce and discuss the importance of their bill, which will be introduced during the 2022 budget session. They said their goal is to establish Wyoming as a leader among the states in keeping critical race theory out of classrooms, while ensuring full transparency of teachers’ curriculums.
This bill empowers parents with the tools they need to oversee what is being taught in their district, and provides guidance to districts on comprehensive U.S. history and civics instruction,” Balow said.
