Strong public schools made America great

Trump-5 DeVos

We now have a president who wants to make America great again. I hear constantly about things that should be fixed, improved or rejected. But I believe that strong public schools made the United States of America great in the first place. Of course there is some room for private school and...


Thanks to an Ogden neighbor for his help this winter

Hollywood types, anarchists creating fear about Trump

Utah Legislature Womens March

Who’s afraid of Donald Trump? Apparently a whole bunch of people, judging from the thousands (maybe millions) who demonstrated recently. They had mixed agendas and not all were anti-Trump; some were there for the publicity and notoriety, some chose to use language that would make a sailor...


We deserve nonpartisan elections for the Utah State Board of Ed

Jennifer Graviet

It’s actually pretty simple. Our State Board of Education members should abide by Utah Code which requires that boards shall design their school programs, that are suggested by generally accepted scientific standards of evidence, to focus on the core standards for Utah public schools....
