Subject: Yes on HB 228, HB 342

I'm asking for your support of HB 228 to change the process of electing people to the State Board of Education.
It is my strong belief that talented and qualified people should be able to run for the board the way other elected officials run for office: by being veted by delegates rather than being appointed to run by a commitee.

I'm also requesting that you pass HB 342, Dana Laytons bill, requiring Utah to have it's own unique standards for educational success, and to discontinue Common Core standards or any other such standards disguised with a different name.

Thank you,
Kathy Leatherwood
