Summary

OPPOSE

 

AB 2226 would make kindergarten a mandatory requirement for children entering the first grade at a public elementary school. This bill is an unnecessary government overreach as it removes kids from their parents when they may not be prepared, and local school districts will bear higher costs. Parents should make the best decision about kindergarten for their kids. The bill also further entrenches job protections for California teachers unions.
