2/27/08: HB 266 and the International Baccalaureate Program

Salt Lake City, UT – Today on RadioWest, we're trying to figure out what's behind the suspicion of a handful of Utah lawmakers to the United Nations. Concerns about the UN prompted a Senate committee last week to reject a bill that would provide funding for International Baccalaureate programs in high schools.
