Unbelievable, first Midvale and Sandy go off on their own and not give us a vote. Fine. Now they want Jordan School District to educate their citiizens. Take a hike Midvale and Sandy. Find your own school within your own cities to teach your English as Second Language students. Already lost faith in Canyons School District? Arrogant pompous twerps. If we have a need for ESL in Jordan School District then only students residing in Jordan School District should go. And that is MY vote.
What an angry post

Did you not comprehend what the article said? It did not say that kids from Midvale and Sandy would be attending the school in South Jordan. It said that Jordan District did not want to risk money right now on an ESL school in an area that does not need such a school. The charter was originally going to be located in Sandy or Midvale, but now is trying to "help Jordan District" by locating in their boundaries. And your attitude about "I don't want to help other kids that are different from mine" is the main reason Sandy and Midvale parents voted to be in a different tax pool than you.

Oh how wonderful, Midvale and Sandy want to "help Jordan District." How sweet of them to throw us a bone. Also, please explain where I said, "I don't want to help other kids that are different from mine." Talk about not comprehending! You dolt. I did not say that. Read again. I said educate your own people in your own school district. I openly said if there is a need then we should take care of our own citizens in our districts. Am I angry? You bet. I don't care to have things thrust on me with no vote or say so. But I will get over it and concern myself with Jordan School District. But I will remember who forced the issue. My shopping dollars will rarely go east of I-15.
