Dear House of Education Committee,
Please vote no on House Bill 96.
As a young single mother I taught my children in the home at pre-school age and had so many free resources available to choose from without being regulated by legislation. I  could teach my children based on their schedule and at their pace while instilling my personal values.
Why is government stepping into the home where they do not belong and tracking this data and sharing it with the work force?
All the research and data I've seen about program preschool hasn't proven that it puts the child ahead at all.
The friends I've had that have put their children in preschool have all commented that by kindergarten their children were bored and it was just review for the whole year. Due to boredom it was stressful for their moms and teachers to keep them interested in school.
Why can't kids just be kids!
This bill is to create a workforce data track.
