The Utah State Board of Education has issued two resolutions calling on state officials to continue their support for the Common Core State Standards, and stating the board's position on the protection of student data. Critics calling for the state to end its participation in the common core have been concerned that student information could become part of a national database. "There seems to be some confusion surrounding the Common Core so the intent was to help clarify some of the misconceptions about that," said David Crandall, vice chairman of the state school board.
