A sixteen-year veteran of teaching with public and private school administration experience, Brian Schroeder is ready to help Wyoming lead the nation in education. Serving as Wyoming’s Superintendent of Public Instruction since January 2022, Brian has proven himself to be an advocate for parents and against indoctrination. Brian believes that the purpose of education is simple: to learn to think.
Brian was born in St. Louis, Missouri and grew up in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. He, his brother and sister were raised in small-town Wisconsin by a single-parent mom who brought them up on a meager nurse’s salary. In hindsight, Brian realizes how poor they really were but during his upbringing never viewed himself that way. Their home was fatherless but their mother gave him and his siblings a stable, safe and strict home environment as well as strong morals and lots of love.
Except for growing up without a father, which was unheard of in those days, Brian’s childhood consisted of all the experiences and activities of any other young boy at the time: sports, fishing, ice-skating, hunting, riding bikes all over creation, lots of adventure, trouble-making, church-going … and, of course, school, lots of school.
