Eagar said that independent of whether the resolution succeeds or fails, Core opponents will continue to push for a total state withdrawal through legislative lobbying or polling pressure during the next State School Board election. The state adopted the Common Core in 2010 and as Eagar sees it, the fight is far from over.
"Regardless of what happens with this resolution we know that we have an enormously growing momentum and we will continue to keep going forward," she said. "Certainly there will be some legislative response and so we will be working on that."
The Common Core resolution is currently one of four scheduled to be considered at the convention, including another submitted by Eagar on the subject of Medicaid expansion and the Affordable Care Act. The full text of the resolutions is available on the Utah Republican Party website.
