Dear Representatives,

I strongly support HB 342 and ask that you please vote yes on this house bill. I am a former elementary education teacher and parent of children in the public school system. I am very concerned with Common Core, especially that it is a top-down education program controlled by the federal government. I believe that Utahns are highly intelligent and capable people who can create educational standards for their children that are consistent with their values and beliefs. Please trust in Utahns and pass HB 342!
