It is time for Utah to change SITLA
SITLA is destroying Utah’s pristine wilderness and providing a paltry 2% of the yearly budget.
Utah spends $4.02 billion dollars per year on k thru 12 public education.
In 2019 $82.66 million in (SITLA) school land trust funds distributed throughout schools in Utah this year.
These numbers and math show SITLA provides 2% ( 0.02056196479 ) of public school funds.
How do they do it? SITLA (and I mean our governor Dirty Herbert and the Legislature) hypes the puny SITLA 2% by requiring school parents to be elected to local councils for 2 year terms to decide how to spend the 2% within strict brackets. (See story above)
A bureaucracy has been created just to serve these councils.
The councils themselves become vested in the SITLA 2%.
All this convolution is in service to perpetuating SITLA, the nefarious enterprise overseen by Dirty Herbert’s hand picked board.
Let’s all support the students who are working to CHANGE SITLA.
