Dear Rep. Sanpei,

Please withhold your support from the HB 131 Public Education Modernization Act. This bill is completely wrong for Utah and will not give the children of Utah a better education.

This bill entrenches us further into the common core agenda, which clearly takes away local control and gives it the federal government who does not have our children’s best interests at heart.

This bill locks us into data mining, which is a huge invasion of our privacy, and it gives our data 3rd party access, which we do not want.

This bill is extremely costly, $200 million, plus. It would wasting precious money we don't have, and would be at a greater cost because it comes with strings attached.

This bill requires only one technology provider, which is unwise.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time with this important matter. I know you will do what is best for the children of Utah.
