Tom Callan, KSL Newsradio One week after voters rejected vouchers, what's next for the public school? Can we expect a new push for higher teacher salaries?

Commissioner of Higher Education Richard Kendell says "absolutely." He says too many teachers leave because their paychecks are so thin.

Kendall also thinks Utah should borrow the example of 15 other states and adopt the following curriculum starting in the ninth grade: English every year, math every year, social studies every year and science every year.

He expects more discussion on school standards in the post-voucher world.
