Oppose. This bill creates a "voluntary" publicly funded early education program for children in Vermont. It will increase taxes and pave the way for efforts to lower the compulsory attendance age in the future. While there is no immediate threat to homeschool liberties in Vermont, this type of legislation expands the government role in education (and/or publicly funded daycare for young children) in ways that HSLDA cannot support.
