Our focus should be on educating our students for a productive life ahead including preparation of the needs of employers in the 21st century. This may be accomplished in a classroom, a specific skills program or a trade school. We need to implement teaching strategies that have been demonstrated to work for students and educators. Once these strategies are identified I will work as your Representative to fund them in a focused fashion to ensure success. Higher education isn’t just about going to college but also learning valuable skills at one of Utah’s many applied technology colleges.
