Although I may be too late to voice my opinion on this bill, perhaps I can express to you my desire that no such legislation ever passes in Utah - namely, the longitudinal data collection on our children and their families. Data mining our children and their families is nothing the State should be involved in. Not now, not ever.
In fact, along these same lines, I would appreciate legislation introduced - and passed - which removes us from the flawed standards and overly intrusive nature of Common Core. We can find (or create) better standards--without the data mining that's none of the State's business--which will be of more benefit to our kids.
