Subject: Please vote AGAINST HB 96 tomorrow

Ladies and Gentlemen, I urge you as a former teacher and Utah voter to vote against HB 96 tomorrow. While the Head Start program shows some success at the very early grades, the benefits "fade" over time and by the end of elementary school participants cannot be distinguished from their peers. It was a noble experiment, but pouring more more resources into this program would be wasteful. Even more frightening is the collection of longitudinal academic outcome data. Again, I urge you to vote against HB 96 Regards, Linda Zornow 1884 Stone Hollow Dr. Bountiful, UT 84010
