Governor Herbert made it abundantly clear this week that he loves Common Core by selecting Tami Pyfer to be his new education advisor. Tami recently participated in the debate in Logan as one of the state representatives along with Dave Thomas.

We already know that the state signed onto Common Core knowing it would have high federal involvement, a full year before the standards were released (read here). Statements from the Governor or State Board members denying these facts and failing to provide documents to the contrary, just illustrate how much trouble we are in.
