I think this bill is benefical to younger children and it would help families from daycare costs. It would give a child higher education that they could learn more. A child that is between those ages can seem to be more egar to learn. I think it would give more self confidence and I also think that it could help reduce the drop out rate in teenagers. I think that if a child has a better understanding of what they are learning at a younger age I think they will succeed more as they grow into adulthood.
