Subject: Please vote NO on HB 131 for public ed modernization act
Date: Wed Mar 05 17:28:51 MST 2014
Please vote NO on HB 131 for public ed modernization act  because: 

--This cost way to much money It has a fiscal note of $200 million but there is a report floating around saying it’s really closer to $750 million the first year and $300 million each year after.
--some technology has proven to increase outcomes, but one to one student to technology ratios have not been found to increase outcomes. Spending where it's proven NOT to work is a waste of public money. 
--Technology can never be given more emphasis than the teacher in the classroom. Students need personal interaction.. technology doesn't cut it. Teachers should be given the resources and technology to provide the best learning in the classroom, then teach their students to the best of their ability.

Thanks, Stuart Wallace, South Jordan
