キンダーガーデンでの就学を義務化

ローカルニュース - Wed, 04/30/2014 - 08:50
 ハワイ州下院は昨日、州内の子ども達の就学年齢をキンダーガーデン(幼稚園年長)からとすることを定めた新法案を可決した。 今回可決された法案2768では、キンダーガーデンへ入学する年の7月31日前に5歳となる子どもは全てキンダーガーデンに就学することを定めており、同法案賛成派は、キンダーガーデンでの就学を義務化することで、子ども達が将来的に成功するための第一歩になるとしているものの、同法案反対派は、州内にはキンダーガーデンの教師の資格を持つ人材が不足しており、子ども達に十分な教育の場を提供できないのではないかとしている。 ハワイ州上院ではすでに同法案を可決しており、今後、ニール・アバクロンビー知事の署名、承認を経て、同法案が施行されることとなる。
