SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Gov. Gary Herbert, lawmakers and state officials will work in elementary school classrooms Monday to learn what challenges teachers face.

Herbert’s office says the governor, education officials and five lawmakers will work as teacher’s aides at Washington Elementary School in Salt Lake City on Monday afternoon.

The governor will be helping out in a kindergarten class. Republican and Democratic lawmakers and education officials will be in other classrooms.

Herbert’s office says about 20 percent of the 400 students enrolled at Washington Elementary live at a city homeless shelter.

The classroom visits are part of a state effort to find ways to support teachers and improve education.
