CTA-sponsored Mandatory Kindergarten Measure Goes to Governor


CTA's only sponsored bill this year is headed to the governor, and your contacts with the governor's office will be crucial to boosting the chances he will sign the measure. AB 1444, by Assembly Education Chair Joan Buchanan (D-Alamo) and Assembly Member Shirley Weber (D-San Diego), would help ensure that youngsters are fully prepared to take on the challenges of today's rigorous elementary curriculum. It would require completion of kindergarten prior to a youngster's enrolling in first grade.

See CTA's Legislative Alert on AB 1444 for more information. 

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
