Subject: Do Not pass HB!31 OUT of committee
Date: Thu Feb 20 15:02:28 MST 2014
Dear Education Committee: I am alarmed at the HB 131 you are considering. When Francis Gibson shared this idea with the Utah Repub Women, many of us were alarmed not only with the concept, but also the sharing of data, the strengthening of Common Core, and the strong-arming of pushing this multi million dollar baby on the backs of the school districts of Utah. MUCH more study and discussion of this has to happen before it should even be considered....much more has to be passed by parents; this will not get Becky Lockhart voted in as Governor---this will change my personal viewpoint of her wisdom and understanding of what is important--as I thought of her before....there might be a small amount of good coming from using computers---but not all of the side-effects which have been added on to the bill--I was even more alarmed when reading some of these than when Francis Gibson told us about it at the meeting.
PLEASE this should not move forward out of committee without MUCH more investigation!
