“A healthy system of education is most likely to develop when parents take full responsibility for their children’s learning progress,” said Paul T. Mero, president of the Sutherland Institute. “For years, UtahSchools.org has been a valuable resource for parents to determine the best educational options for their child. And now, this wonderful tool is available to Hispanic parents, to help them improve their children’s educational outcomes.”
According to a report released this month by the Utah State Office of Education, more than 40 percent of Hispanic students in Utah’s public education system are not graduating with a diploma.
“My children deserve just as much of a chance to succeed as any other child here in Utah,” said Sandra Plazas, a Hispanic mother of two. “One of my children did just fine in the local public school, but my daughter needed more specialized attention. Fortunately, I was able to do some research and my daughter was accepted into a charter school where her grades have improved substantially. Now, UtahSchools.org gives other Hispanic parents, who may not know much English, the ability to determine the best fit for their child.”
