Please vote No on HB 96 title the Utah School Readiness Initiative.
Please protect Utah's children and families from longitudinal data collection. It is unfair to have a child's education record follow them their entire life.
We also need to learn the lessons of history and the failure of the Head Start program. The government has no right to interfere with the parental responsibility of educating a child, especially during the formative years when a child needs the influence of parents and family the most.
Please consider the unintended side-effects of this bill. This bill is not in the best interest of Utah's children and families.
