Don't remove grade

Some of our "esteemed" politicians within the state Legislature want to phase out the 12th grade and get these kids graduated while they are technically juniors in high school, all under the pretense of saving the state money. I don't know about the rest of the population, but that sounds stupid. The ones who want to implement this should be voted out and allow new blood to bring in new ideas. The state of Utah may not spend the most money per student, but let us not become a bunch of cheapskates by removing a grade from our schools.
