Wyoming's Legislators
Back to School Program

Runs Throughout the School Year

Program Improves Learning

Recently, Wyoming participated in a study commissioned by NCSL that examined the impact of America’s Legislators Back to School program on participating students’ understanding and appreciation of representative democracy. Evaluators tested middle school students in Louisiana and Wyoming and found that in both states, students who participated in the program scored significantly higher than control groups on concepts such as appreciation of the right of every citizen to be heard by his or her representatives; the procedures a state legislature uses to resolve differences about public policy; and an understanding that representative democracy is a system in which individuals elect legislators to represent the people.
