    The people who should decide are the taxpayers. It is the taxpayer who will provide the money to educate our children. If South Jordan can provide BETTER education at a reasonable cost, then South Jordan SHOULD have its own school district. If South Jordan citizens are paying taxes and their taxes are a disproportional amount of the Jordan School District's revenue, then Jordan School District should fix that problem. Perhaps the biggest reason to leave the Jordan School District is the outlandish proposal to increase taxes dramatically that was defeated by the voters.

    We need schools. Schools cost money. The schools are not doing the job expected. They are failing to teach our children.

    Everybody wants their own little kingdom. This is embarrassing. Didn't people learn anything at all with the JSD and Canyons split? Obviously not.

    The only people that a new school district would help are the newly hired administrators that will make lots of money. Go to a district office and check the high salaries and the number of people working there.

    Here we go again. This could get ugly.

    But a South Jordan School district won't be nearly responsive enough for the needs of my community! We need more local control!

    I propose we declare the "my house" school district. That way, I know that all the administrators will be working for the best interest of my children, and my children alone.

    Just as long as we can keep paying the teachers $20,000 per year....
