Subject: Please REJECT HB 417!!
Date: Mon Mar 03 19:07:22 MST 2014
HB 417, in its current form, puts educational centralization and standardization ahead of local contol, teacher interaction, child well-being, parental rights, and personal privacy. I would respectfully request that you withdraw this bill and get some additional input from parents and the Instructional Materials Commission before moving forward.
Please, please vote against this bill and get parental rights, child well-being and local control of our education system back where it needs to be. Common Core is a disaster and my children struggle with it each and every day. It has effectively ruined their love of learning. The teachers I have spoken to hate it because they aren't allowed to "teach" and the children need that interaction.
