Please pass HB 342 by Rep. Dana Layton. This bill will allow Utah to create its own high quality education standards without tying us and making us accountable to the federal government. I am an educator in the state of Utah and want you understand Common Core isn’t a complete set of math standards and the ELA standards place undue emphasis on informational texts. The problems we are experiencing already from the common core standards are deep and far reaching. We want locally controlled education and it is up to you to make sure you are protecting education in Utah.
