Subject: Please Pass HB 342 Powers & Duties of the State Board

Dear Representative,

I strongly urge you to pass HB 342, Powers and Duties of the State Board, which would enable Utah to create our own higher standards for education; standards created by Utahns for Utah families and children. I have serious concerns about Common Core, including federal government overreach which leads to loss of local control, mediocre standards that are not benchmarked, and extensive data collecting which is an invasion of privacy. In short, Utah can do much, much better than Common Core.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration in this important matter, and thank you for representing the citizens of Utah.
