I am writing regarding House Bill 96sponsored by Rep. Greg Hughes titled Utah School Readiness Initiative. I strongly oppose this bill. I don’t think that school should be pushed at such a young age. Children that young are not developmentally ready for such rigorous academics.  The right and obligation to educate children, especially young children, belongs to the parents. A bill like this would only place even more financial burden on an already over encumbered education system and an over taxed public. Please oppose HB 96. Thank you for your time
