SL Tribune Editorial says "Fund New Students"

The SL Trib supports Gov. Herbert's budget proposal to fund enrollment growth for the first time in three years. So far, however the Legislature is not signaling that it will support the governor's plan. Last year, as you remember, it was predicted that 11,000 new students would enter our public schools. The number was thousands more than that...and without any funding to support those new students...class size grew...per pupil funding fell...teacher salaries lost ground. This year it is predicted that another 14,000 new students will cross the doorways of our schools. Without funding the downward spiral will continue.
