Utah Thrives: Funding for Utah’s At-risk Students

Written by: Dan Bammes

When the Education Excellence Commission convened by Governor Gary Herbert looked at ways to improve Utah’s public schools, it spent a lot of time talking about students at risk of academic failure. How to pay for the extra help they need to catch up to their peers, what programs are in place and who pays for them, is the subject of a new research report from Utah Foundation.

In this episode of Utah Thrives, we hear from Utah Foundation Vice President and Research Director Shawn Teigen, the principal author of the study, and from Dr. Rebecca Donaldson, ESEA Federal Programs and Related State Initiatives Coordinator for the Utah State Office of Education.
