Does his plan include a reduction in tuition so more students can afford to
The Gov is going to buy everyone a thermometer??
Those kids look really excited to be with the governor. It is great to have a
plan, but the reality often eludes politicians. Schools are merely reflections
of the community they are a part of. Schools can be a catalyst for change in a
community, but strict rules and guidelines for parents and students have to be
put in to place for that to work. There are already plenty of accountability
measures for teachers, but the state of Utah is extremely lax when it comes to
parent responsibility. For instance, in many states, parents are not allowed to
keep their student home to babysit, go on vacations, or other non-emergencies.
If they do so, their student will receive unexcused absences and pay a fine to
recoup wasted tax dollars. Some states will actually send the parents a bill
for wasting school dollars by keeping their kids home from school too many
times. The same thing goes for online education courses.
Re: toosmartforyou Farmington, UT"Does his plan include a reduction in

with ambition can achieve their goals while those who expect others to give them
their education on a silver platter get the idea government owes them a living.
Often degrees are not helpful when seeking employment. Young people need a
degree with some real experience. It would be helpful if the education system
would make sure that their program prepared young people to be able to
immediately perform some duties related to their degree. A plumber,
an Electrician, or some other kind of tradesman can usually get some kind of
work. Many schools have discontinued these programs as too expensive.What about a Psychology major, Internation Business major, or a Music Major.
Are they Employable in their chosen field??? Well sometimes.
