Lawmakers in Utah are considering legislation that would require most of the state's funding for high schools to be deposited in individual accounts for students. Under the bill, students could use the money -- estimated at $6,400 per student -- to attend public schools, public-charter schools and others. Any money left over could be used for higher education. Supporters say the measure would create more competition among schools and give parents more choices in educating their children.
