Subject: REJECT HB 417
Date: Fri Feb 28 23:26:33 MST 2014
To The House Rules Committee,
PLEASE PLEASE reject HB 417! This supports Common Core, which is corroding our education system. With this bill, there will be a major loss of local curriculum control, a central planning of education, and a breach of privacy. Teacher interaction will be replaced with "screen time", parental rights will be ignored and it will bypass the Instructional Materials Commission.
I respectfully request that you withdraw this bill and get some additional input from parents and the IMC before moving forward.
