This question arises from testimony before the Joint Education Committee and the trial between WEA and that state. The long-time expert, Christina Stoddard,  who studies WY educational statistics, was called to testify against the state.

WEA claims that the state knowingly underfunds the schools.  Since the largest portion of a school’s budget is related to salaries, good hiring data would help answer some questions.  Is there a pattern to the shortages? Will increasing salaries alleviate this?  Dr. Stoddard (pictured below) said she’s unable to answer these questions in the absence of good data.
