State School Board Seen as “Unaccountable Bureaucrats”   12 comments

I appreciate Rep. Brian Greene’s recent statement on his Facebook page, in reference to the recent KSL article.  He said that the state school board should not ask the Legislature  “to validate the board’s adoption of Common Core by quashing public opposition to it. ” 
   Amen.

Funny how the state school board wants to make it clear that they have full authority over public education, but want the Legislature to validate their adoption of CC  by quashing public opposition to it. If the Board is so committed to CC, they need to begin acting like the elected officers they are and take their message directly to the voters and stop acting like unaccountable bureaucrats.
The State School Board has unanimously passed two resolutions that state official positions on the Utah Core Standards and the security of personal student information.

  1. The State School Board is in no way involved with the narrowing of candidates for the State Board of Education. An independent committee, appointed by the Governor and representing various groups (Utah Code 20A-14-104), interviews candidates and makes recommendations to the Governor. Any questions asked candidates are developed by the nominating committee. Current State Board members are bright, dedicated, committed to education, and to the best of my knowledge all beleive in liberty and local control.
