I've been following the School Voucher referendum for a while now (by the way I'm for it) And I was pretty sure it was going to pass. So yesterday I thought oh I should start looking for some charter or private schools for Kail so when we move back he's all signed up. But to my horror the referendum didn't pass! WHAT??? Utah what is going on? Were you all really bullied/scared out of voting for it by the Unions? Can anyone enlighten me? Is the Public school system just that wonderful? Does anyone really care? I should have gotten an absentee ballot and voted! According to fox news 95 percent of 2,237 precincts reporting, 62 percent of voters cast ballots against the program. Holy cow. Okay so didn't anyone in Utah see the John Stossel report "Stupid in America"? That explains it all. Everyone who thinks throwing money at a failing/failed system is just fooling themselves. This referendum would have put the power back into the parents hands instead of us just having to deal with what they give us. By making all schools compete for our money don't you think that would make them all want to be better? You need to watch this:
When are we going to start getting more involved with our kids upbringing? When are we going to stop relying on the Government to raise our kids? Do you really want these people teaching our children their morals? How about the new California law SB777. Utah you're next. Please tell me I'm not the only one!
