ACT, Inc., Alignment of Common Core and ACTs College & Career Readiness System (June 2010) College Board, Research Report 20105A, Common Core State Standards Alignment: ReadiStep, PSAT/NMSQT, and SAT (November 2010) National experts dont support the standards. Only 4 of 28 experts on the validation team disagreed. This is just the unsuccessful Investigations Math approach. Standards dont define how to teach or what to use to teach. This will kill the reading of classic literature. Choices of materials are local Informational text is part of all other classwork (e.g. social studies, science, math, etc.). Utah wont be able to change these standards or only 15%. Utah can change any or all of the standards.

The State Board rushed to adopt the standards with no public notice or input. All Board actions were in public meetings where public input is taken. Utah public input was received during three 30-day comment periods throughout the process. Public input is still accepted, analyzed, and used (e.g. handwriting). Utahs new Core Standards are an example of federal overreach. NCLB is federal overreach. Common Core adoption allows a waiver. The Common Core is a new federal, high stakes assessment system. The assessment system is entirely within Utahs control. Common Core standards obligate the collection of personal student. No new data will be collected as a result of the Common Core adoption. Old Utah Core Standards C in English A- in Math

Common Core received B+ in English A- in Math The Thomas B. Fordham Institute found that the Common Core State Standards were comparable or superior to the existing standards in 48 states, including Utah. (Carmichael, The State of State Standardsand the Common Core in 2010, Fordham Institute [July 2010]). The Common Core provides admirable focus and explicitly requires standard methods and procedures, enhancements that would benefit Utahs standards. NAEP is part of the Institute of Education Sciences, of the federal Department of Education. Its board is appointed by the US Secretary of Education. States are required to participate in NAEP federal assessments as part of NCLB and as a condition to receiving Title I monies. In the past, many states realigned their state education standards to the federal NAEP standards, such as in the case of Massachusetts in 2001. According to a recent white paper released by the National Center on Education Statistics, the Obama Administration

wants to use the 13-question survey that eighth-grade students customarily fill out during NAEP tests to ask more probing questions in order to determine a students socioeconomic status. On May 2, 2013, the Utah State Board of Education enacted Resolution 2013-03, which provides the Boards position against the release of identifiable student data. The Common Core Initiative does not require the release of any student data information. Utah is not associated with any of the testing consortiums which may require student data information. Current federal law (FERPA), prohibits the release of identifiable student data. However, it does allow for the release of aggregated, nonidentifiable data. There is some confusion over Utah statutes, which appear to be contradictory as to the release of identifiable student data. The State Board has encouraged the Utah Legislature to appropriate changes to ensure the privacy of public school students.
