Why is Utah LAST in the nation in per-pupil funding for education?
Why do we have an unprecedented teacher shortage in Utah? Join us at our September meeting to learn answers to these questions, and what we can do to improve education in Utah. We have some great speakers joining us, and are looking forward to learning from their expertise.

Our speakers will be:

Dr. Suzanne Harrison
Suzanne joins us on behalf of Our Schools Now, and will speak on the current initiative that will be on the ballot this fall to increase funding to Utah’s schools.

Representative Sheryl Allen
Representative Allen (HD 19) will speak on the slippery slope of partisan school board elections.

Kathleen Riebe
Kathleen is an educator and newly-elected District 10 representative on the Utah State School board. She will provide an overview of the challenges and opportunities in Utah’s education system today.
