Be aware that Sen. Chris Buttar's bill SB 48 could be debated on the floor of the senate today. We oppose this bill, because it is unecessary and redundant. It would allow for someone with a degree to teach by just taking a test. Please contact your Senators from your home or cellphone. You can go to the http://www.utea.org/ website or the legisative website www.le/state.ut.us to access emails and phone numbers for your senators. You can also find talking points on the UEA website.
