    Chuck Newton needs to be voted out of office yesterday. Just because he's upset shouldn't be a reason to float a nonsense idea such as this. But it would definitely raise their taxes significantly. Were they to do some thing this dumb, they would deserve it.

    South Jordan continues to threaten to leave the district if Jordan School District does not meet their list of demands, even though it will cost taxpayers more and reduce services. Perhaps they need to elect some city council members with some common sense.

    finally someone is using their brain for something other than to hold their ears apart. splitting districts raises costs and thereby hurts the students. some districts can get too large to effectively manage, but that is definitely NOT the case in the JSD.

    I'm glad South Jordan, where I grew up, avoided the fate of the Canyons School District. They broke off to promote the the elite club of the east side. South Jordan has a significant average income base and they will do a lot of good for the entire Jordan School District, and benefit from keeping taxes and per student costs down for all residents. They do need to get to reducing class sizes and building more schools with haste. Keep the pressure on.
