    If Utah can achieve even limited success given how little the State Legislature appropriates for its public schools, (far less than ANY other state), just imagine what could be accomplished with even an average level of funding.

    One more piece of evidence that out public schools in Utah are flourishing not floundering like the press and far right want us to believe.

    Thank you teachers of Utah!

    Hopefully this information of good performing Title I Schools compared with those not performing well will give some insight into the underlying factors or concerns that might give rise to issues that need to be addressed by low-income schools. Neither Salt Lake City, Jordan, Davis, Ogden, Weber Counties where the bulk of low-incomes schools exist seems to have been able to break into the well performing category so there may be much more that needs to be done. However, if there is a crack in the low-income school barrier, that's a big start hopefully.
