This bill would require each school district to offer early childhood education, and it provides funding for these programs based on the number of enrolled students. According to the fiscal note, this would cost the state $47 million for one year.
While not directly affecting homeschool students, HSLDA believes this type of focus on early childhood education will expand state control over young children and open the door for more restrictive legislation, such as lowering the compulsory school attendance age. Additionally, reliable evidence suggests these programs are not helpful for children. HSLDA believes young children are best served in a loving, home environment.
