Utah Ed Standards Were Modified by Permission from an Unelected D.C. Group   3 comments

If you click on the link above, you will come to the Common Core standards for Utah.

I believe that the Utah State Office of Education is deliberately misleading us in this document, which calls itself Utah Core State Standards, not Common Core Standards.

The document presents itself as if it were a Utah-specific set of standards. But it’s Common Core.

How do we know?

If you go to page four, you will see that these standards were modified after Utah asked for permission to do so, from the Council of Chief State School Officers (a group not accountable to taxpayers nor unelectable by the voting public).

Page four says:
