AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to an interstate  compact
  on educational opportunity for military children

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  Legislative  intent.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares  that  military  families  are reassigned postings on a regular
basis, with the result that most military children will have six to nine
different school systems in their lives from kindergarten to 12th grade;
and further finds that such reassignments can result in transition chal-
lenges for these children who must start their lives over in new  cities
and  bases,  changing  homes,  schools,  friends, and relationships. The
legislature further finds and declares that it is a  matter  of  equity,
fairness, and in every sense in the public interest to provide the chil-
dren  of military families opportunities for educational success, and to
assure that they are not penalized or delayed in achieving their  educa-
tional goals by inflexible state processes and procedures.
  S 2. The education law is amended by adding a new article 40-B to read
as follows:
                              ARTICLE 40-B
                          INTERSTATE COMPACT ON
              EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR MILITARY CHILDREN
