 Senators, It doesn't matter if you are Republican or Democrat, we all love our youth. I'm challenging each of you to watch this presentation on common core and the other segments that follow. Our greatest assets are our children.  I just can't fathom all of you being in favor of Common Core. It is horrific. I know many of you are parents and grandparents who deeply love their children. I have many friends who are teachers, they have been warned not to say anything negative on common core (Sage testing) they are indeed afraid of losing their jobs. On top of everything this Sage testing has nothing to do with their grades.
 The Governor of Utah has sold our children for federal money. I'm horrified that we let this happen and that many are just finding out how we have all been sold down the river. Every one I have talked to is sick and tired of money and power trumping what is right and good. This time it's gone too far...experimenting on our children, picking their minds for personal  family formation, values, etc, . This has nothing to do with Math, Science, English or History. The math that is being taught is absolutely ridiculous frustrating, forcing children to dumb down. The very idea of Nationalized education smacks of Hitlers tactics in programming the youth. Please watch this video and help put pressure on our Governor to get rid of Common Core. Many other states have either rid themselves of this program or are in the process. Money isn't the the most important thing...our children and individual freedoms are.  Thank you for taking the time to seriously research this and taking action to put pressure on our Governor to end this program immediately!
