    Simple question:

    How much adherence is there to the FLDS Church today? What has changed over the past few years to make them open up much more? Obviously Jeffs is in prison, but I thought he was still governing the church from behind bars. Has he softened to the idea of having the school? What's to stop him from saying once more that the school should be avoided, and then enrollments drop again? Are the people that brought the school back all ex-church members? With the school and last week's report of the compound-turned-bed and breakfast, there's a lot of news coming out of Hilldale lately. How many FLDS are left that haven't become estranged, and that are still obedient to Jeffs?

    I think the article could do well to give this information, as I'm in the dark.

    Is this the same Willy Jessup that was convicted of violent crimes a few years ago and Warren Jeff's lead enforcer? I have little sympathy for these people.

    Ha! Just another example of "public" schooling indoctrinating children, taking them away from the simple truths and values that they should be learning at home. Common core will only make things worse!

    What the community needs is a true free market, so that people can choose the schools that best fit the values of their home and church! Get big government out of education!
