14 districts fail AYP

More Wyoming schools failed to meet federal education benchmarks last year.

Fourteen of Wyoming's 48 school districts and 180 schools didn't meet what's called adequate yearly progress under the No Child Left Behind law.

Last year, eight districts and 101 schools didn't show adequate yearly progress.

No Child Left Behind requires states to have every student performing at grade level in math and reading by 2014, which most educators agree is an impossible goal.

Wyoming superintendent of public instruction Cindy Hill says her department will keep working to meet 100 percent proficiency but she'd prefer "more reasonable expectations."
