To: Rep. Perry, L.,
Subject: Please Pass HB 342
I strongly urge you to pass Rep Layton's HB 342.
This bill will allow Utah to create its own high quality standards and not be beholden to outside special interest groups that have used Federal bribery through Race to the Top to get us onto Common Core.
Common Core isn’t even a complete set of math standards, it’s not college or career ready, and the ELA standards place undue emphasis on informational texts which is not helpful for children’s love of learning.
