The Big OneNovember 2, 2007
So, there has been a ton of talk lately, (especially at work, for me), about Utah’s Referendum 1, and all this school voucher business. For whatever reason, I have been really interested in hearing everyone’s views on the subject, so I thought I’d post hear to get some more responses.
I have read through most of the bill itself, but not the impartial analysis. I have included it because I have heard elsewhere that it is pretty good. Just to get things started, I lean in favor of the referendum. I like that it creates more money per student in the public schools (at least for five years) and think there’s something to be said for creating competition. I think there is a lot of misinformation about the negative impacts of the bill, but there are also lots of good arguments against it as well.
Anyway, I’ve seen that this can become a hot button issue sometimes, so let’s keep things civil. Just looking for some interesting conversation, not a grudge match. 🙂
