Subject: Take Utah Education to the TOP 10 in the US

Dear State Representative Lifferth, Utah students need proficiency in reading and math and they need to graduate from high school. Utahns need postsecondary education that prepares them for the workplace. We must utilize innovative strategies, increased accountability and targeted investments to improve the current mediocre performance of our public education systems. Educational achievement correlates to economic progress for individuals and communities. As you know, Utah ranks high as a state with a robust economy showing strong growth and low unemployment. Unfortunately, our rankings in education are less favorable. It is past time to have a significant raise in higher and public education funding. I am willing to pay a higher income tax to do this. Please improve funding for education! I hope that you will change this by supporting initiatives that will ensure Utah�s continued economic success and prosperity by taking Utah education to the top 10. Sincerely, Sheryl Allen 683 Country Court North Salt Lake, UT 84054
