Wyo. Education Dept. inquiry released
An inquiry into the Wyoming Education Department chronicles a slew of complaints and concerns about how the agency was run under State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill.
However, the inquiry report released Tuesday by Gov. Matt Mead's office makes no conclusions or recommendations.
Concerns raised by current and former employees include how money was spent, and how employees were treated and hired and even fearful for their safety.
In response, Hill defended her practices or said she was unaware of specific problems and complaints.
Mead created the inquiry in February after hearing of concerns from agency employees. The concerns came out when Mead and the Legislature passed a law replaced the statewide elected superintendent as head of the Education Department with a director appointed by the governor.
