Support the Repeal of R277-328 – on February 1, 2024

The USBE met on January 11, 2024 to debate and possibly repeal R277-328,  the vote failed by one.  This rule “installed, codified and further entrenched the Praxis of CRT into Utah’s Schools” — that was always  its intention.   More info on the rule’s origins here:  https://utahed.info/328-2/

The repeal would resolve the massive conflicts with the principles and process set forth in HB 427, passed in 2023. Even a casual review of this rule with HB 427 (passed in 2023) reveals clear conflicts between said rule and the Utah Legislative Code. These conflicts underscore the necessity of this repeal.  

The recent passage of HB 261 articulates that the mere existence of this rule is in conflict with Utah Code. 

On February 1, 2024 — the board will again meet to consider the repeal and possible amendments to R277-328.  At this time, the Utah GOP and the Salt Lake County GOP still stand behind their call and support for REPEAL, and we are asking you to do the same as the proposed amendments are grievously inadequate to comply with code and do the job necessary to rid our education system of CRT — specifically since the amendments are riddled with CRT.  

We ask that you write the board today assert, REPEAL R277-328 and do not entertain amendments.  

A vote in favor of this repeal will not only resolve the current legislative conflict but also demonstrate the Board’s commitment to fostering an educational environment focused on learning and critical thinking, free from the constraints of any singular ideology.

There is eager anticipation about the positive outcome of this agenda item and many are optimistic about the future direction of the Utah State Board of Education. A successful repeal vote this month will be a significant milestone in our continued journey toward educational excellence in Utah.
