House Bill 59: An Act to Create an Early Childhood Education Plan
Representatives Kawasaki, Gara, Tuck, Petersen
This bill would require the Alaska Department of Education to devise an early childhood education plan for children 3 and 4 years old. While the proposed program is described as “optional,” it is likely to become a mandatory program in future legislation. Parents, not state officials, are in the best position to determine when a child’s formal education should begin.
