Body:

I would like to voice my opinion about HB 96, which I believe that you will be reviewing in committee tomorrow morning.  I believe it is completely unnecessary to plan for a preschool program for at-risk children.  Isn't that what the Head Start program was designed for and it was proven to be a complete failure? http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/head-start-tragic-waste-money

A preschool experience for any child isn't necessary and there is very little data that shows otherwise, especially for at-risk children (Head Start program).

 

Please evaluate carefully before you vote on this bill in committee tomorrow morning.  If I were to vote on this bill, my vote would be NO.

 

Thank you,

Kristy Bitter
