Dear Representative,  I strongly encourage you to pass HB 342. I feel it is essential that Utah create its own high quality standards and not be tied to outside special interest groups that have put Utah’s school children and their families tied to Common Core. Common Core’s standard are not of a decent enough quality to push our students to excel.  The Common Core standards are lower standards that will cause our students to underperform and be less prepared than they could be for college or careers.  The Math and English Standards are of special concern to me.  We can do better. We must do better.
