Everything that has been successfully achieved in Iowa has been built by Iowa’s public education system. It’s the foundation of our State’s stellar reputation for excellence.
As teachers deliver on their ongoing commitment to our kids, our ongoing commitment to them is to fund our public schools.
Restoring teacher rights to collectively bargain is essential and not diluting support for public education through education savings accounts is important.
Doubling down on supporting our public schools also ensures that the next generation of teachers will stay in Iowa and continue to build on what we have.
Higher education funding is critical to retaining our college graduates as the next generation of business creators that will re-populate our rural cities. IF, we support a high quality of life.
The outcome of our support will be an educated workforce that meets the needs of our employers and stimulates the business creators of the future.
As we are counting on them, our 500,000 public school students are counting on us. They must be our highest priority.
