CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The State Board of Education is divided on what to do now that lawmakers have tried to block them from adopting new national science standards for Wyoming’s schools.

A footnote to the upcoming state budget cut off funding for the board to review or use the Next Generation Science Standards.

The Associated Press reports that the board met Monday to decide how to proceed. By just one vote, members voted against putting aside their work on those standards and seeking a new set of standards. Members said restarting the process would delay the adoption of new science standards.

Rep. Matt Teeters of Lingle introduced the amendment cutting off funding for the new standards, partly because he said they treated human-caused climate change as “settled fact.”
