As a mother of 5 children, I strongly oppose HB96.
Government has no business tracking my children from ages 3 to 20. They don't belong to them.
The social science data I've been reading shows that those countries who are excelling with education aren't starting their children in public schools until age 7 or 8. Why are we going backwards? (See"Boys Adrif"t by Sax; he lists tons of studies and sources)
We have enough problems with funding education without adding in a couple extra years for kids who need to be home with their families. I'd rather see 5 million dollars spent on reading, writing, and arithmetic.
Let's strengthen families, not replace them with misplaced government programs.
Please vote NO on HB96.
Think about it.
