Mandatory Kindergarten (CA) Bill Delayed

Bill: AB 2203 (as introduced 2/23/12)—5-Year-Old Compulsory Education

Author: State Assembly Member V. Manuel Perez

Position: Strongly oppose

Thanks for your important phone calls!

During the Assembly Education Committee meeting on March 28 the committee decided to postpone the hearing on AB 2203 in order to consider potential amendments to the bill. Our position is that no amendments will help. The hearing will be rescheduled for as early as April 11.

Summary of Concern:
AB 2203 would lower the compulsory education age from 6 to 5 years of age, in effect making kindergarten mandatory. AB 2203 also would take another incremental step toward forcing a mandatory state-licensed preschool program for all 3- and 4-year-olds.

Action Items:
No action is needed at this time. We will follow up with another email action alert when the next action is needed. A big thank you to those who contacted the Assembly expressing your opposition to the bill. Please be alert, as we will probably need your help in the near future again.

Without your support we could not stand for freedom in California!

If you or someone you know is not a member of HSLDA, will you consider taking a moment today to join or recommend us and support our work defending individual families threatened by government officials and protecting homeschooling freedom for all? Join now >>
