UTA asks Stand Up for Utah KidsSchool Choice Rally

Stand Up for Utah KidsSchool Choice Rally
JOIN US in support of Utah moms and dads who want to be able to choose the school that works best for their kids. Together, we can make a difference for the thousands of families who are depending on the voucher program to start THIS fall.
WHEN: Tuesday, May 15, 2007TIME: 1:30 - 2:30 PMWHERE: State Capitol, Salt Lake City(courtyard north of the main capitol building)
It's time to put KIDS before politics By law, Utah's new voucher program went into effect last Monday. Unfortunately, the State School Board chose to disregard the law at their recent board meeting by deciding to not implement the voucher program for this fall. We're holding the rally on May 15th because that is the day by law that the State School Board should make voucher applications available for families.
As many of you know, the referendum/petition against vouchers is only against the first of two bills that were passed during the recent legislative session. The Attorney General issued an official opinion stating that the voucher program should move forward regardless of the referendum.
Please make this rally a priority Together, our voices will put a human face to this important issue and pressure government officials to uphold the law by implementing the voucher program.
