Subject: Please reject HB 417 ELA Instructional Tool

Dear Representative,

I ask that you please reject HB 417. If you want the children to hate reading by the time they are in the 2nd grade then by all means pass this one. However if you are on the side of reason and want the children to like to read by the time they get out of elementary school then please reject this one!

HB 417, in its current form, puts educational centralization and standardization ahead of local control, teacher interaction, child well-being, parental rights, and personal privacy. I would respectfully request that you withdraw this bill and get some additional input from parents and the Instructional Materials Commission before moving forward.”

Thank you for your time,

Tawni Branton
