This bill would create the South Carolina Child Development Education Program. This would be a full-day, 4-year-old kindergarten program for at-risk children. It would also include parenting education for parents to learn how to prepare their children for school. While this would begin as a voluntary program, such programs often become mandatory at a later time. The cost to taxpayers per child would be $4,218, increased annually by inflation.
HSLDA opposes any expansion of the state in the education of children. This bill should be opposed.
This bill has been referred to committee. See "Bill History" link below.
