A 1 million-acre land deal--the country's largest since Alaska statehood in 1959--was finalized when Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt handed over a $50-million check to Gov. Mike Leavitt. Leavitt accepted the check on behalf of the state's school trust lands administration and its beneficiaries, Utah's public school students. The school trust also will receive about $13 million in future coal revenues and 153,000 federally owned acres rich in natural resources.

The teachers union said 80% of the state's 22,000 teachers took part in the strike, which forced the closing of hundreds of schools. "We're supposed to solve the world's problems, but they're giving us less and less to do it," said teacher Nancy Safsten. "We are putting our hearts and souls into this and we need some help."
