Dear All, Please support HB 96, the Utah School Readiness Initiative. I know many of you do, but perhaps not all. Utah has the data to show the effectiveness of preschool programs, and as a pediatrician, I have had the privilege of periodically watching many kids grow and improve their skills enormously, or not, as they either have the advantage of preschool, or regrettably not. Our children, and our Utah school system, can benefit tremendously by having our kids begin their education in preschool. Please support HB 96. Tom Metcalf, MD
