Subject: Pass HB 342 POWERS AND DUTIES OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION

Dear Representative,

I strongly urge you to pass HB 342 by Rep. Dana Layton.  The power to create curriculum should always stay at the local level. Over the past nineteen years, I have seen many federal government interventions affecting the public education of my own children that have NOT been to their learning advantage.  Increasingly, a Utah education with federal oversight favors teaching to the lowest learning levels.  Critical thinking skills and individual excellence are stifled.  I believe Common Core is the gateway for a nationalized curriculum that could forever change the future of our country in negative ways.  Please support our children's future and education by voting for this bill.
