Our students deserve better than the status quo. A personal income tax increase and a sales tax increase will be placed on the ballot in 2018. But this will only feed more money into a flawed system and have immediate negative consequences on the economy.
A tax hike is the path of least resistance to improving education — that leads nowhere. Utah students deserve the road less traveled — driven by innovative and individualized learning that allows every child to reach their full potential. We need to be for something, not just against a tax hike. That something is innovation and education choice.
