house Bill H.R. 3461

Increased Access to Kindergarten for Disenfranchised Youth

Argument in favor

Kindergarten is vital to a child’s educational and social success, and should be available to all American children. Decreasing the number of low-income children currently placed on waitlists for programs could potentially decrease poverty in America.

Argument opposed

Some concern that the federal initiative is duplicative of existing programs. Fully-funded, the bill would still leave 60 percent of low-income children under age 5 without access to any public programs.
