Utah State Office of Education Lies to Legislature and Board about National Common Science Standards Adoption   1 comment

You can’t just watch this; you have to act:  email your legislators and school board members and members of the media.

One dog barking does not wake up a town.  Ten thousand barking dogs will.

This short, seven minute video is a powerful documentation that uses the actual voices from recorded audio and video from legislative meetings and school board retreats that show the trail of promises broken and the belittling and bullying happening to our legislators, parents, and teachers by the Utah State Office of Education.

  • You will hear the USOE curriculum director promising an elected school board that Utah will never adopt national common science standards.
  • You will hear the USOE superintendent promising the Utah legislature that Utah will never adopt national common science standards.
  • You will hear the USOE representative justifying the adoption of the common science standards and their hiding of the true science standards, giving parents a watered down, fake version –even during the time that USOE has an official “public comment” period happening— with the excuse that parents would find the standards “overwhelming”.

 

Please watch and share.

    USOE is just a little bit “more equal” than you and the tax payers who pay their salary.

    As an aside, it pained me to hear Dr. Menlove make those promises on a record that will never go away. Why? I honestly think he believed that with all sincerity. When reality hit him? He quickly and unexpectedly resigned as State Superintendent of Schools.

    When (not if) USOE adopts these federal standards, they will forever tarnish the name and reputation of a very decent and honorable man.

    More important than any proposed adopted Standard, are the concepts of “integrity” and “transparency” within the constitutionally based frameworks of “checks and balances”.

    In my field, the deliberate “poo-pooing” of the above cited concepts, irregardless of potential harm to others, is diagnosed via one word:

    Sociopath.
