Any candidate who thinks "PerPupilSpending" is the main criteria to use to
indicate whether our education system is working or not... will NOT get my
vote.I agree we need to increase education funding... but NOT
just so we can say "We spend more than X States on education".ANY politician who's main statement/goal on education is to increase
PerPupilSpending... has the wrong goal.We should be focused on
increasing QUALITY... NOT SPENDING!!!Just increasing spending
has been PROVEN in numerous studies to NOT increase quality. Politicians who
think, "increasing SPENDING increases QUALITY", are NUTS!Politicians who campaign on the PerPupilSpending mantra of the UEA... have
been co_opted by the teacher's Union. There is MORE to Education than just
increasing Spending!If you're going to REALLY talk about
public education in Utah... at least talk about the WHOLE thing... NOT just
PerPupilSending (PPS is USED by those who WANT to make Utah education look
bad).We ARE doing some things right in Education. We need to do
EVERYTHING better. But just focusing on PerPupilSpending... will not necesarily
fix ANYTHING.Any politician who can't see more than the
PerPupilSpending UEA_gotcha... shouldn't be leading.
Why I deserve your vote: Peter Corroon says "I am running for Governor because I
love Utah and want to focus on the basics upon which our state was founded
(side-note: The LDS CHURCH), small, honest and effective government. Utahns
value strong, ethical leaders. To support our economy, I will focus on local,
homegrown businesses to create jobs. (side-note: Government don't create jobs,
people do so that's a lie). Utah's unemployment hit a 26-year high and
continues to rise. Over 100,000 Utahns are unemployed. (side-note: that's true,
it was caused by RINO GOP's that are interested in money, greed, corruption,
above the law, (ignore us common people unless they need your votes while
re-campaigning again), career politician's who will take money from any special
interest and say or do anything to keep his hold on power. It's secret
government by the insiders, for the insiders only today. That's for BIG BUSINESS
"ONLY" and their deep pocket's.) Our bulls-eye focus will be on the economy,
education, energy, quality of life and making ethics a priority. (side-note: get
rid of the illegal's also.)
Very nice of the D News to give ONE of the candidates for Governor this forum.
Would have been nice if the Libertarian (me) had been given the same
opportunity. I am more interesting than he is, and I have exactly the same
statistical chance of being elected. Newspapers no longer have the staff or the
space to cover ALL the news; and what they do cover is pretty arbitrary. Fight
back. Vote Libertarian, Andrew McCullough for Governor. Make them look dumb.
Oh Pete, You have so much potential. I did vote for you but you could have
done so much better.Perhaps next time?
Negativity really blew this one.
