Joint Legislative E-lert: July 2, 2014

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

Bill: AB 1444 (as amended 4/22/14) Mandatory Kindergarten

Author: State Assemblymember Joan Buchanan

Position: Strongly oppose

Thank you for your important phone calls to the Senate Appropriations Committee!

Status: The Senate Appropriations Committee voted June 30 to postpone their committee vote on AB 1444 until mid-August. No action is needed now. Please be ready for another AB 1444 action alert between August 4 and 11.

Summary of Concern

AB 1444 would make kindergarten mandatory before entering the 1st grade, forcing one more year to a child’s education.

There are serious problems with this new proposed legislation that are outlined in our previous AB 1444 e-lert, which you can read on our website.
