I give kudos to Sens. Jim Dubakas, Wayne Niederhauser, Stuart Reid and others who are working to create an education task force (SB169) to determine the long-term solutions to Utah's education problems. However, as I read about the proposed makeup of this new task force, I see a glaring lack of any voices from the actual education community — the professionals who have an actual working knowledge of how state policies affect the students, teachers, administrators and others working in the bull's eye of the target this task force aims to create.
Isn't it about time you ask the troops in the trenches how these education battles can best be fought? Give educators a voice in creating education policy.
