Legislative Town Hall: Adequate School Funding

students2What’s the best way to improve K-12 education for the money? And what is the best measurement, without encumbering education with a focus on measurement? Those and other questions addressing school funding is the focus of the September Town Hall sponsored by our local Republican Legislators.

The Town Hall is:
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 22
Ridgeline High School, 180 North 300 West in Millville.

The Panelists for this discussion are:

Ben Leishman
Fiscal Analyst for Public Education
Office of the Legislative Fiscal Analyst

•  Terryl Warner
State Board of Education

•  Tami Pyfer
Governor’s Education Advisor

•  Dr. Beth Foley
Dean of USU Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services

•  Superintendent Frank Schofield
Logan School District

•  Dr. Steven C. Norton
Superintendent Cache County School District

A moderator will conduct the discussion and questions will be taken from the audience. Refreshments will be served.

While this Town Hall will only address funding issues, the plan is to have October’s Town Hall focus on other education issues and “hot topics.”

The monthly Legislative Town Hall meetings have been sponsored by our local Republican Legislators, Rep. Curt Webb (Providence), Rep. Ed Redd (Logan), Sen. Lyle Hillyard (Logan), and legislative candidate Val Potter (North Logan — running unopposed for House District 3).
