INCREASE INVESTMENT IN UTAH PUBLIC SCHOOLS!

Utah State Legislature

Petitionntoinvest1200x796

Utah must have viable, sustainable and GROWING investments in our public schools to ensure the success of every child. New money invested in our schools should be used to address Utah’s critical teacher shortage, reduce class sizes to allow individualized student attention, improve resource equity for students, and to provide for improved student health and safety.

Our legislators should fully utilize new revenues created by a strong economy to invest in student needs. They should reject proposals to divert income tax intended for our schoolchildren to other uses, especially tax cuts primarily benefiting corporations and the wealthy.

Tell our legislators that a solution to Utah's sales tax problems shouldn't come at the expense of Utah students. A tax structure cannot make an economy truly competitive unless it provides for significant investments in a highly educated workforce.

Please support investments in Utah’s future by providing significant growth in per-student public education funding, including a 6% increase on the WPU (per-student funding). Reject proposals to divert income tax intended for our schoolchildren to other uses.
