California: Mandatory Kindergarten Bill Delayed

From: Roy Hanson--Family Protection Ministries and Mike Smith--HSLDA

Bill: AB 2203 (as introduced 2/23/12) - 5-Year-Old Compulsory
Education

Author: State Assembly Member V. Manuel Perez

Position: Strongly OPPOSE

Thanks for your important phone calls!

Status: During the Assembly Education Committee meeting on March 28
the committee decided to postpone the hearing on AB 2203 in order to
consider potential amendments to the bill. Our position is that no
amendments will help. The hearing will be rescheduled for as early as
April 11.

Summary of Concern:
AB 2203 would lower the compulsory education age from 6 to 5 years of
age, in effect making kindergarten mandatory. AB 2203 also would take
another incremental step toward forcing a mandatory state-licensed
preschool program for all 3- and 4-year-olds.

Action Items:
No action is needed at this time. We will follow up with another
email action alert when the next action is needed. A big thank you to
those who contacted the Assembly expressing your opposition to the
bill. Please be alert, as we will probably need your help in the near
future again.

Without your support we could not stand for freedom in California!
