House File 1882: Universal Preschool
Sponsors:
Representative E. Murphy, Representative Moran, Representative Kahn, Representative Davnie
Summary:

House File 1882 provides funding for universal preschool for 4-year-old students.

Bills like this are a potential first step toward lowering the compulsory school attendance age and increasing 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.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:
2/25/2014 (House) Introduced, Referred to Early Childhood & Youth Development Policy Committee
5/16/14 (House) Legislative Session Ended; Bill Died in Committee
