Your Action Needed to Stop Government Intrusion into the Family
Dear Wyoming Members and Friends,
Two bills are being proposed in the Wyoming Legislature that would expand state control over early childhood education programs. House Bill 26 and House Bill 81 require the director of the state Department of Education to coordinate early childhood education programs provided by state agencies.
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. Diverting revenue to these early education programs is an inefficient and unnecessary use of taxpayer resources.
Because the current four-week session is a “budget session,” bills that do not affect the budget must be voted on before they are introduced. These two bills can be defeated now if they do not receive the necessary votes for introduction. Please contact your representative and ask him or her to oppose introducing these two bills which expand government control over families in Wyoming.
Please contact your own representative and give him or her the following message in your own words:
“I am calling to oppose introduction of House Bill 26 and House Bill 81. These bills expand the state’s involvement in early childhood education and divert taxpayer funds toward ineffectual programs. Many studies have shown that early childhood education programs are not effective and can infringe on parental rights. Please vote against introducing HB 26 and HB 81.”
You can find the contact information of your representative online.
Thank you for all you do in defense of freedom for families in the great state of Wyoming!
Very truly yours,
Michael P. Donnelly, Esq.
