The story "Utah ranks in bottom half of country for high school grad rate" (Tribune, Nov. 27) just broke my heart. Since Utahns just overwhelmingly re-elected the same jerks who have been putting the state's education in the toilet for decades, I can only conclude that most Utahns don't care enough about their children.
Or rather, they care about lower taxes more than they care about their children. They're more willing to pay to upgrade their interstate freeways more than they are to educate their offspring. Incredible.
Where is the shame? The embarrassment? The outrage? The leadership?
