I believe it is unconscionable that the state board and local boards allow students with such poor math skills to graduate. The students and the "professionals" must be held accountable for such basic knowledge before studnets are allowed to graduate. Paul Neuenschwander

Representative, Utah House
Please sign me up as a strong proponent of increasing math skills in our public schools. Rural Utah has a supply of great young people who know how to work and just need the direction and the instruction to succeed. Thanks to Senator Valentine and Dayton for their work in this effort. Mike Noel
