CHEYENNE, Wyoming — A national research and advocacy group gives higher marks to Wyoming's policies for teacher preparation programs and what state guidelines education students have to meet.

But the Washington, D.C.-based National Council on Teacher Quality still only gave Wyoming a "D-minus."

In past years, Wyoming has gotten an "F." The average grade for all states this year was a "C."

The organization's report says the state should ensure that all elementary teachers are sufficiently prepared for the ways that college- and career-readiness standards affect instruction of all subject areas.

However, Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board Executive Director Andrea Bryant tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle ( that the report may not accurately reflect what happens in the state's teacher training program.
