Vote YES on HB81 and pass it out of committee. HB81 will protect parental rights because it allows any parent to participate in the review process for the new SAGE (Common Core) tests. This bill will protect the integrity of the test because a non-disclosure agreement will be signed by every participant. This bill is in line with current Utah code;
Parents have the Constitutionally-protected right and duty to exercise primary control over the care, supervision, upbringing, and education of their children (Utah Code Section 62A-4a-201).
The state's role is secondary and supportive to the primary role of a parent” (Utah Code Section 62A-4a-201).
