To Utah's Legislators:

I am opposed to HB 96 sponsored by Rep. Greg Hughes titled Utah School Readiness Initiative.  I believe that there has not been enough evidence that preschool programs benefit students in the long-term.  Using the tax payers money on something that has never been proven to help children is a waste of our money.

I am also concerned about the collection of data in this bill as well as the collection of data in the Common Core program.  It seems that privacy is the first thing to go for the "common good".  This right needs to be preserved for our children.

Thank you,

Cathy Monson
