Commissions the Department of Family Services to develop policy recommendations on early childhood development and kindergarten readiness programs. Bills like this are a potential first step toward lowering the compulsory school attendance age and increased government involvement in a child's early education. HSLDA opposes expanding compulsory school attendance ages because doing so infringes upon parents’ freedom to make educational decisions for their children. Furthermore valid research has demonstrated that programs like these are not effective.
