Dear Representative,

 

In a time when Utah is just barely starting to recover from a recession that impacted millions of people in Utah, now is not the time to do a massive expansion of education spending. The fiscal note on this shows Utah will spend hundreds of millions of dollars on technology in the classroom that is completely unproven to improve outcomes for students. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that this may actually have a price tag of $750 million!  There is no way Utah should be spending this kind of money on an unproven tool. Please vote NO on HB 131.

 

Sincerely,

 

Oak Norton
