Subject: HB 117
Date: Fri Feb 28 17:51:46 MST 2014

Please Do NOT vote for this bill! As a mother of 9 children I am against this bill for many reasons, including:

·         Unprecedented loss of local curriculum control


·         Central Planning of Education


·         Bypasses the Instructional Materials Commission


·         Breach of privacy


·         Parental rights


·         Replaces Teacher Interaction with “Screen Time”


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!

Thank you,

Cassie Danfors
