Bob Springmeyer's Education Survey


Utah spends over 33% of the state budget on K-12 education and an additional 11% on higher education.

From early education to higher education, your governor plays a key role in ensuring the availability of and expanding access to, quality programs so that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed.

* Today's global marketplace demands that all Utah students acquire the highest level of intellectual, technical and social skills.

*Ninety percent of jobs providing a wage sufficient to sustain a family of four require vocational training, an associate degree or higher after high school.

*More than two thirds of new jobs require post-season education.

Those who are poorly educated will have low-end jobs and have a higher likelihood of being dependent on government programs to sustain themselves and their families.

We Must Do Better!

Thank you in advance for taking the time to participate in our Critical Issues for Utah survey.

Your opinions are critical to my campaign.

Bob Springmeyer
Utah Democrat for Governor

Your numbers are quite misleading to begin with.

The State spends 48% of state funds on public ed and 15% of state funds on higher ed.

It's only when you calculate federal money when it lowers the percentages and most of that money comes for entitlement programs such as Medicaid, etc.

The State of Utah spends over 60% of "it's" money on education.

FYI. I'm assuming this survey was posted yesterday, the 10th? I clicked the link to take the survey and was told I had already taken it and it closed my window. So I wish I could take your survey, but it won't let me.
