This year marks the 25th anniversary of the landmark report, A Nation at Risk.
In the 2007-08 school year, Utah spent $8,224 per public school student.
Charter schools are independent public schools run by parents or non-profits.
The average class size in Utah is 22.2
High school students can graduate with an associate's degree and a scholarship worth 75% of college tuition.
Collective bargaining agreements are the labor contracts that school districts and charter schools* enter into with unions representing employees at the school.
The agreements outline everything from teacher pay schedules to policies for paid and unpaid leave. As such, it's important that citizens understand the contracts that their tax-funded schools agree to.
*Since none of Utah's charter schools have unionized employees, none of them have collective bargaining agreements.
In the 2009 Legislative Session, the Utah State Legislature passed House Bill 210, which requires school districts and charter schools to post their collective bargaining agreements online. Learn more about this new law>>
As we find the collective bargaining agreements online, we will post a link to them here.
