Who should be in charge of what gets taught in schools? And how many layers of oversight should it go through? These are the questions the Utah Legislature is weighing this year.

  • Courtney Tanner, Salt Lake Tribune education reporter
  • Lizbeth Padillo, Granite School District social studies teacher
