This is a companion bill to House Bill 1203. This bill would create “Mississippi Upstart,” an internet-based, computer preschool program for children 3- and 4-years-olds who aren’t in kindergarten. Part of the program is to “Test the feasibility of scaling a home-based curriculum in reading, math, and science delivered by computers and the Internet to all preschool children in Mississippi.” While this would not begin as a mandatory program, it has the potential to become mandatory.
