Subject: Please vote yest on HB 342

I am writing about HB 342, a bill that would modify the duties of the State Board of Education. This bill would require that standards are written specifically for Utah in English and Math. This is a critical bill in taking education away from Common Core and federal control and giving it back to Utah. I believe that the State Board of Education can write standards specific to the needs of Utah children much better than anyone in the federal government can, because the Board members are much closer to those they are serving! Please support this bill, vote yes, and get it out of committee.
Thank you for your time,
