8) What are your feelings about charter schools?
Democrat - Richard Watson:
Again, charter schools began as a great idea for Utah families. And charter schools continue to serve the needs of those families who want a specialized education for their children. However, some lawmakers have viewed charter schools as a profit-driven opportunity for building more charter schools rather than focusing on the education needs of our communities.
Republican - Dan Liljenquist:
I fully support the charter school movement in Utah.
