    Having said what I said earlier:

    This is a serious issue. The real solution lies in the home. Parents need to talk with their kids. They need to have frank discussions with their children. Teachers see students a few hours a week. Parents should be spending a few hours each day!

    This is a tough issue that is 'preventable" if identified.

    Great, another item in a long list of things the State Legislature is going to put on teachers.

    The legislature is real good at passing the buck to someone else, without doing anything themselves. I wish I could pass laws that require others to do more work and thus lighten my workload.

    We never seem to find the funding for teacher salary increases, but we sure can find increases in their work load!

    RE: enochrsn I could not agree more with you! However, it's easy for them to play the role of school board than that of a legislative body.

    Thanks "boys and girls".

    The Utah Senate and House is full of wanna-be state school board members. They are so focused on being a pseudo-school board that they continually fail on their primary role with public and higher education: funding. Is bullying and suicide a critical issue? Yes. Instead of creating an endless stream of laws with unfunded mandates, give the USOE a directive with the resources to accomplish the directive.
