STATE SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES FACE OFF


DEBATE SERIES TO HIGHLIGHT VIEWS BEFORE ELECTION DAY

From establishing student testing to assessing curriculum standards, decisions made by the Utah State School Board directly affect the state’s 643,000 public school students, their families, teachers, and administrators.

“The state school board debates will allow Utahns to ask questions, explore the issues, and engage with the candidates," said Jason Perry, Director of the Hinckley Institute of Politics.  "Ultimately, this initiative will empower voters in these critical, yet often overlooked, elections."

Audio excerpts from the candidates will be available at KSL.com
