Letter: Herbert should veto Lockhart initiative if passed
First Published Mar 09 2014 10:19 pm • Last Updated Mar 09 2014 10:19 pm

I strongly encourage Gov. Gary Herbert to stick to his guns and veto Speaker Becky Lockhart’s technology initiative HB131 ("Gov threatens to veto Lockhart’s education technology initiative," Tribune, March 6).

As a parent, and former elementary school teacher, I find this bill irresponsible. The first and most important factors affecting educational success are quality teachers and class sizes, not technology.

I question Speaker Lockhart’s priorities and motives in proposing this bill.
