In a recent column, LaVarr Webb wrote, "You heard it here first," in predicting a major budget crunch for Utah's public schools as enrollment balloons and class sizes are overlarge. Hasn't LaVarr paid attention to the already oversize classes and Utah funding being lowest in the nation? He could better have written, "You heard it here last." Apparently he was too busy tinkering with the vouchers campaign to notice the more substantial underlying needs.
