Prediction for Rep. Hughes:since the vast majority of parent already has
"confidence in schools," and there's a very vocal minority
unceasingly fueling "speculation and rumor regarding Common Core"
despite all evidence, the state will never be able to move on ... Until we learn
to ignore this group of home schoolers.
And in another piece of legislation, all requirements for home schools were
virtually eliminated. Amazing!!!
One vocal parent's complaints can take more than an hour to listen to, and
then two to four hours to adequately address and respond to. Some individual
cases take several days. Compound that time spent by including the entire state
into a law without funding requiring EVERYTHING to be reviewed by a voluntary
parent group and it won't take long till there will be no volunteers.This is a bad bill.
This might be the start of education reform---taking complaints seriously
instead of just saying "There are too many to consider" or "There
are just a few very vocal disgruntled parents".Why is it that
everyone pays taxes to support schools, yet only those who agree 100% with what
is happening in our schools are allowed to be taken seriously?
To "Steve Cottrell" that is graet news. Now, the kids who have parents
that are concerned about their education can get it with little interference
from the State.
I thought we were a Republican state?Seems to me there were a large
number of bill proposed and passed that are increasing the size and scope of our
government?This one's a mystery to me?
Hopefully Gov. Herbert will just veto this bill. Legislature does a wonderful
job of passing "unfunded mandates" and this is just another example of
this. Confusing to me on this is whether this applies only to comments/
complaints about "adaptive testing" or "any subject" or only the
subjects where adaptive testing is used. Clearly, there are some parents who
want to complain about our educational system and the content of the classes (or
lack of it), but most don't understand how adaptive testing technology
works. This bill, it seems to me, is designed to give additional validation to
this very vocal minority who want to complain. Parents who have legitimate
concerns or complains have ample processes and procedures in place to ask
questions and voice those concerns = 1) talk to the teacher of the class, 2)
talk to the principal or the school, 3) talk to the local district
administrators, 4) talk to local school board members - - wow, pretty simple
really and doesn't require a state level board set up by State Board of Ed.
. . . .
This is awesome. Now we just need a committee set up to address teachers
complaints about student's work ethic, enabling or apathetic parents, low
pay, and the inversion. Complaining is the key to success, especially when there
is a committee to review the complaints.
Another roadblock to education just passed and it puts more restriction and
hardships on parents to prevent them from being involved in tier childrens
education and what is being taught by our communist education system out to
destroy this country and its culture and its greatness by common core lies and
propaganda.Some think of this as a good law, but its a terrible law
and it disallows parents to object to propaganda and the lies in schools.
Children killing each other should be a concern for all parents and those
supporting legislation to restricted parents rights is an affront to free
education and childrens rights to be taught the truth. Common core is a lie and
its the most deadly education system that is controlled by federal government.
This is not free education, its propaganda and fundamental obstruction of the
minds and lives of our future.This law locks parents out of their
childrens schools and the right to confront schools and administrators in their
local schools. Parents get kicked in the groin again by our education
departemnet losing all control and input of eduction. Parents must start pulling
their children out of the Utah education system.
