Journal of the House


Second Regular Session, 92nd General Assembly




THIRTY-NINTH DAY, Tuesday, March 16, 2004

 

The House met pursuant to adjournment.


            Speaker Pro Tem Jetton in the Chair.


            Prayer by Reverend Donald W. Lammers.


(If the truth is necessary for all successful human communication, it is essential in the work of this body. We begin with a few words from Jesus’ prayer for his disciples, and end with a verse from the Hebrew scriptures.)


              Let us pray.


              Jesus prayed, “Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth. As You sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. And I consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth.” (John 17:17-18)


              Holy God, today, help us to discern what is true. When several truths compete for our attention, give us the vision to see which is of greater importance in Your view. When several truths deserve consideration at once, give us the wisdom to place them in the order of priority that You would choose.


              With the writer of Psalm 25 we pray:


              “Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and for You I wait all the day.”

              (Psalm 25:5)


              We pray to You, our God for ever and ever. Amen.


            The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.


            The Speaker appointed the following to act as Honorary Pages for the Day, to serve without compensation: Sarah Castor, Brooklyn Summerville, Sarah Kirkman, Stephanie Anderson, Billy Horton, Matthew Koyne, Melanie Pancoast, Sam Pautler, Laura Jursek, Sang-Woo Nam, Patrick Wilson, Eriq Kristek, Catherine Kristek, Grace Kristek, Parker Breeden, Nicollette Fellwork, AnnaMaria Maples, Sally Cowherd, Shelby Gilbreath, Blake Worm, Zack Meehan, Lauren Staehr, Nicholas de Jong and Connor Burkett.

House Amendment No. 1


AMEND House Committee Substitute for House Bill Nos. 795, 972, 1128 & 1161, Page 3, Section 50.339, Line 13, by inserting after all of said line the following:


              "64.242. 1. All streets contained within any subdivision plan of development regulated under sections 64.211 to 64.295 shall comply with all county road specifications upon completion of the plan of development.

              2. Any board or committee established to govern any part of the subdivision, including any review committees, shall provide proportional representation of the homeowners in the subdivision based on the percentage of homeowners in the subdivision other than the developer. Upon the sale or the completion of the development of the subdivision, the developer shall relinquish all positions on any board or committee governing any part of the subdivision to the homeowners.

              3. No member of any board shall have any financial interest in any subdivision of land development project or in any entity that develops subdivisions of land within the county for which the person serves as a member of the board.

              64.820. 1. From and after the adoption of the official master plan or portion thereof and its proper certification and recording, thereafter no improvement of a type embraced within the recommendations of the official master plan, or part thereof, shall be constructed or authorized without first submitting the proposed plans thereof to the county planning commission and receiving the written approval or recommendations of the commission. This requirement shall be deemed to be waived if the county planning commission fails to make its report and recommendations within forty-five days after receipt of the proposed plans. In the case of any public improvement sponsored or proposed to be made by any municipality or other political or civil subdivision of the state, or public board, commission or other public officials, the disapproval or recommendations of the county planning commission may be overruled by a two-thirds vote, properly entered of record and certified to the county planning commission, of the governing body of the municipality, or other political or civil subdivision, or public board, commission or officials, after the reasons for the overruling are spread upon its minutes, which reasons shall also be certified to the county planning commission.

              2. The county planning or zoning commission shall file a recommendation and report with the county commission. The scope of review by the county commission shall be limited to the recommendation and report of the planning or zoning commission; except that the county commission may hear and consider additional evidence, if the county commission finds that the evidence in the exercise of reasonable diligence could not have been produced, or was improperly excluded at the hearing before the planning or zoning commission.

SPECIAL ADDRESS

BY

SENATOR CHRISTOPHER "KIT" BOND


Thank you Madam Speaker. It is an honor to be here today to talk about a program that is very close to my heart, Parents as Teachers.


Twenty years ago, when I was Governor, Missouri broke new ground with the enactment of the Early Childhood Development Act which took the Parents as Teachers program state wide. This was a landmark achievement.


Everyone recognizes the importance of a child's first three years and the vital role that parents play, but that was not always that case.


When I was pushing for enactment of the Early Childhood Education Act in the early 1980s, most of you were not yet in the legislature.


Many of you may not realize how forward thinking the concept of parental involvement truly was at the time and how hard a fight it was to get it through the General Assembly.


Today we are fortunate to have the founder of the Parents as Teachers Program here with us today, Mildred Winter. Mildred has been involved from the very beginning. Thanks to her vision and commitment millions of parents have received the support they need to give their child the very best start in life.


My involvement with Parents as Teachers began in 1979. Then Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education, Dr. Arthur Mallory, who worked for me the previous term when I had been Governor, came to talk to me about this very interesting idea. I am so pleased that my good friend Dr. Mallory could be here with us today.

 

The concept behind Parents as Teachers was developed by a group of Missouri Educators who had noticed that children were starting Kindergarten with varying levels of school readiness.

 

Research demonstrated that greater family involvement in children's early learning was a critical link to the child's development of academic skills, including reading and writing. They believed that a program to help parents understand their role in encouraging their child's development right from birth could help prepare children for school and life success.

 

Such a program, available to all families, would help level the playing field for all children. It was Dr. Mallory who first sold me on the merits of the program.

 

In 1981, this idea was tested with a pilot project at four Missouri school districts. After the pilot had been operating for three years, findings from an evaluation were released.

 

It showed that children of parents participating in the program consistently scored higher on all measure of intelligence, achievement, auditory comprehension, verbal and language ability, and social development than did children in a comparison group. The idea had worked!

In 1982, I also set up something called the Children's Trust Fund Commission to help reduce child abuse. We brought together 25 eminent children's leaders from education, health and religious organizations around the State who studied child abuse prevention.

 

They came back in 1984 with the unanimous recommendation to adopt Parents as Teachers as a way to help the families address the challenges of raising a child.

 

Over these years, I had recommended Parents as Teachers to the Missouri General Assembly. They did not pass it in 1981. They did not pass it in 1982. They did not pass it in 1983. But being stubborn, I came back in 1984, armed with the positive results from the pilot project and with the Director of Corrections.

 

In testimony before Committee he pointed out that parental involvement and parental responsibility would help reduce the population of our corrections system.

 

He concluded that supporting Parents as Teachers was one of the most important things we could do for the long-term future of our State.

 

Fortunately, after a bit of cajoling, a little wheeling and dealing, and a few side deals that I will not mention here, the Missouri General Assembly finally adopted Parents as Teaches as a statewide program in 1984.

 

This made Missouri one of the first states to recognize that early parent support can reap huge benefits not only for children and families but also for schools, communities, and our country. Missouri was a true pioneer.

 

I would be remiss if I did not mention a tremendous partner and ally in this effort, Senator Harry Wiggins. Senator Wiggins sponsored the legislation for me in 1984.

 

I am sorry he could not be here today due to his health. Without his leadership and passion on this issue, success would not have been possible.

 

I would also like to acknowledge Senators Goode and Bland. They both served in the House of Representatives in 1984 and have been true friends to Parents as Teachers throughout their legislative careers. I thank you.

 

Over the past 20 years what began as an experiment in Missouri has expanded to more than 3,000 programs in all 50 states, as well as seven other countries.

 

We estimate that the program has served more than 2 million families over that time. In this past year, in Missouri alone, Parents as Teachers served 164,000 families with more than 175,000 children.


And, as a result of Parents as Teachers, more than 141,000 children were screened for developmental, language, hearing and vision; 16,353 children were identified with potential developmental delays and referred for further evaluation; 12,191 children received follow-up services in Missouri.

 

Thanks to early identification and intervention more children are getting the care and the services they need to fix problems before they escalate.

 

The continued success of Parents as Teachers is undeniable, and the research reveals this in many important ways.

 

For example, independent studies of Parents as Teachers conducted in Missouri since the pilot project have shown that:

 

At age 3, Parents as Teachers children performed significantly above the national norms on a measure of school-related achievement. This relative level of achievement that Parents as Teachers children achieved at age 3 was maintained at the end of the first and second grade.


Third graders who had received Parents as Teachers visits with screening services scored significantly higher on standardized measures of achievement than their non-participating counterparts. Specifically, on the Stanford Achievement Test, Parents as Teachers children had a national percentile rank of 81, while non-participating students had a rank of 63. Furthermore, Parents as Teachers graduates were less likely to need remedial reading assistance or to be held back a grade in school.


The most recent study of Parents as Teachers, published in 2002, found that the school readiness scores of Missouri's children in high poverty school who participated in PAT were equivalent to those of children at low poverty school who had no preschool enrichment.


Parents as Teachers helps to close the achievement gap - exactly what the program set out to do 20 years ago. In doing so, it is also saving our state money.


Parents as Teachers also engages parents in their child's development and education from the earliest years. For example, one study demonstrated that:


Missouri parents who participated in Parents as Teachers and whose children also participated in either preschool or center-based child care engaged in more frequent home literacy activities - such as reading to their child or telling stories to their child - than parents whose children only participated in either preschool or center-based child care. These home literacy activities were related to the children being rated as having above average preparation for kindergarten.

 

Furthermore, participation in Parents as Teachers results in increased parental involvement once the child reaches school age, which research shows is positively related to achievement.

 

Results such as these are why Parents as Teachers must be made available to all families. What family does not benefit from early screenings? What family does not benefit from information about how to best promote their child's early development? I know we did with my son Sam.

 

This country believes strongly in a public school system to which ALL children have access. In Missouri we had the wisdom to define education as beginning in the earliest years. This means Parents as Teachers can be offered without stigma or labeling and all families can share its benefits.

 

Today, working men and women are finding it increasingly difficult to balance family and work responsibilities. Certainly, being a parent is hard enough work, and many do not have the tools or resources to give their children the head start they need to succeed.

 

Increasing support for Parents as Teachers is now more important than ever.

 

Unfortunately, not all families have access to Parents as Teachers today. Approximately 269,716 families and 332,907 children are served by Parents as Teachers annually nationwide.


And while this is a tremendous accomplishment, there are more families that need to be reached by this life-changing program.

 

The bill I will introduce soon in Washington, the Education Begins at Home Act, makes a bold federal investment in parents by establishing the first, dedicated federal funding stream to support the expansion of Parents as Teachers at the state and local level.

 

The bill authorizes $500 million in federal funds over three years to expand services to more than 2.7 million families nationwide. Here in Missouri the funds could be used to supplement, not supplant, current state funding.


The funding will allow Missouri to take Parents as Teachers to the next level - reaching even more families and providing even more intensive services to all families, especially those families with high needs.


The bill will also focus particular attention on encouraging more collaboration between Parents as Teachers and the Early Head Start Program as well as expanding access to PAT for military families and families with limited English proficiency.


Just a few weeks ago, 500 children, parents and early childhood educators gathered in the Capitol Rotunda to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Parents as Teachers Program and to thank the legislature for its support.


They made the trip to Jefferson City because they support and believe in power and the effectiveness of Parents as Teachers.


Some that gathered in the Rotunda were families that participated in the program, some were parent-educators trained in the PAT curriculum, some were teachers and superintendents who are on the front lines everyday and have seen first hand the difference this exceptional program has had in the lives of children and families.


Some of you may have joined them for that important celebration or have met with representatives from your local PAT program. It is hard to come in contact with these folks and not be moved by their stories.


Parents as Teachers is a sound investment in children and families as the results of the program clearly demonstrate.


Missouri was ahead of its time in 1984 when we redefined our public education system to begin at birth and we made parents central to a child's success. The rest of the country is still catching up, just beginning to realize what we've known here for years.


Thank you.
