TUESDAY WAS A VERY SPECIAL DAY FOR STUDENTS AT WOODS LEARNING CENTER, AS U.S SECRETARY OF EDUCATION, BETSY DEVOS, VISITED CLASSROOMS. DEVOS PICKED CASPER AS THE FIRST STOP ON HER 6-STATE 'RETHINK SCHOOL TOUR' AFTER FINDING THAT SCHOOLS IN WYOMING EXCEL WHEN IT COMES TO MEETING THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF STUDENTS. DURING HER SPEECH DEVOS STRESSED THE NEED OF CHANGE IN OUR COUNTRY'S EDUCATION SYSTEM WHICH SHE BELIEVES IS OUTDATED, HIGHLIGHTING MORE PERSONALIZED EDUCATION, CREATIVE EXPRESSION IN CLASSROOMS AND THE IDEA TO BUILD EDUCATION AROUND THE STUDENT, AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
