Utah Representatives,

I ask you to consider many parents concerns regarding HB 164. 

As a parent with three children caught up in the middle of common core and SAGE testing, I beg you to consider a parent's right to opt out of testing. I know what is best for my child. I'm sure we can all agree that the education of a child should always start with the parent....then the teacher.... then the administration... then school district... and then government ***not the other way around****

Taking away parent's choice is the wrong choice.
