Is that Senator Howard Stephenson, or Howard Stephenson, President, Utah Taxpayer's Association?

Funny how a sitting Senator can be the president of a lobbying association.

Doesn't pass the smell test.

Improving schools, seem to always involve higher spending.

It's this narrow vision, which prevents progress.

In the back of their minds, it's how to spend money.

Its been very frustrating teaching at a Junior high in Utah County and just added 8 kids from charter schools to my various class rolls. The problem is after the 1st term ends the charter schools don't care if they lose kids. The money for each of those students stays at their original school of enrollment and does not follow them to their new school. This policy needs to be changed.
