Call to oppose HR 3221 – Feds to Control kids from Birth to 5

Where in the Constitution does it say anything about the Federal government controlling education. The fact that the Feds send ‘mandates’ to the State level and have education czars is one thing that has to be stopped. Along with the federal regulations regarding eduction of our country’s children, they have come up with this little slice of crap. The HR 332 has to do with federal interference in early childhood education. Big Brother is at it again. Call and write you non-representatives. Being nice doesn’t mean you don’t have to play nice. We have one crisis after the other with this current administration and it will take all of us to stay on top of the shredding of the Constitution and to stop the erosion of our freedoms.

HSLDA: Call Now to Oppose Federal
Funding for Early Education Programs

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote today or
tomorrow on H.R. 3221, the “Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act
of 2009.”

This bill should be opposed for the following reasons:

> It will create federal funding for state early education programs
for children from birth to 5 years old, allowing government officials
to make parenting decisions for children in these programs;

> States may use the funds to create mandatory early education
programs, since the bill does not require that the programs be
voluntary;

> The states will have an economic incentive to increase the number of
children in early education programs, and may pressure families to
enroll their children in these programs;

> It will greatly increase the size and scope of the federal
government’s involvement in education.

ACTION REQUESTED

Please call your U.S. Representative with the following message.
There is no need to identify yourself as a homeschooler:

“Please oppose H.R. 3221. This bill will create new federal funding
for early education programs in the states. The federal government
should not expand its involvement in early education programs.
Parents, not federal or state officials, should decide what is
appropriate for their children.”

BACKGROUND

H.R. 3221 will amend the Higher Education Act of 1965 relating to
student loans. It will entirely change how college students receive
financial aid to attend colleges and universities by eliminating all
student loans through private lenders. The U.S. Department of
Education will take over all student loans, which will greatly
increase the federal government’s role in higher education.

Additionally, H.R. 3221 includes Title IV (Section 401) which creates
an “early learning challenge fund.” This early learning challenge
fund would allow the federal government to provide grants to the
states to support state efforts to increase early education programs
from birth to age 5.

H.R. 3221 was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives on July
15, 2009, and was approved by the House Committee on Education and
Labor on July 21, 2009, by a vote of 30-17.

HSLDA opposes efforts to increase the federal role in early education.
H.R. 3221 is costly, and could lead to pressure on families to accept
these federally-funded early education programs.

Thank you for standing with us for liberty.

Sincerely,

J. Michael Smith, Esq.
President, HSLDA
