Bill Description: Senate Bill 1075 creates a new prekindergarten program for student and parent training. 

Rating: -1

Does it create, expand, or enlarge any agency, board, program, function or activity of government? 

Senate Bill 1075 creates a new government program that directs public school districts to provide a four-week prekindergarten program for students and a training program for parents. Many existing private tutoring, parent training, and prekindergarten programs already help parents prepare their children for kindergarten. Extending education tax credits is a more sensible option than expanding government into the pre-K industry. The expansion of government anticipated by this bill could also presage future proposals for things like universal pre-K. Diverting tax dollars to pre-K programs whose costs far outweigh their benefits is not is not a substitute for fixing Idaho’s K-12 education system.
