A new report from the Utah State Office of Education on students at public school’s shows that grades are linked to economic status. Associate Superintendent Judy Park says the research shows that students in more economically successful zip codes are getting mostly “A’s” and “B’s”, while kids who are in less successful zip code areas are getting lower grades. Utah Education Association President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh says more resources are needed to help students in lower income areas do better in school. She also says that the Office of Education’s grading report shows that the state has not done enough to fund education.
