Subject: Why to say YES to HB 324
Date: Sat Feb 22 03:45:47 MST 2014
Body:
Please pass Dana Layton’s bill HB 342 on the Powers and Duties of the State Board of Education.

This is the bill that lets Utah get its own unique state standards. It “requires the State Board of Education, on or before July 1, 2016, to adopt revised core curriculum standards for English language arts and mathematics that are developed specifically for Utah.”This bill will allow Utah to create its own high quality standards and not be beholden to outside special interest groups that have used Federal bribery through Race to the Top to get us onto Common Core.

This bill empowers our State Board so that they can adopt the curriculum that will be the best for Utah's children!

Sincerely, Peter and Sharon Anderson
