Campaign Corner: No on Ballot Measure 4

In 2012, FACE’s Education Team fought to protect junior kindergarten, giving the state time to come up with a better plan for our keiki.  In September 2014, FACE hosted Dr. Cliff Tanabe of the UH Education Department, Joan Husted former HSTA Exec Director and members of Parents for Public Schools to debate the value of “Question 4”, the constitutional amendment that would allow public funds to be spent on private early childhood education programs.

At the end of the session, the group voted to recommend a “no” vote on the amendment. FACE leader Mary Weir explains her reservations about Amendment #4 in her October 28 Op Ed in Civil Beat.

Vote NO on Constitutional Amendment #4 this November

FACE values and supports early childhood education.  We want our members and all the families in Hawaii to have universal access to high quality, developmentally appropriate preschool, but approving public money for private schools is not the right path.

Why are we concerned about this issue?

We are concerned about access and equity.
