Tell Branstad what Iowa Ed needs

Our View

Tonight, Tuesday Nov. 15, Governor Terry Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds will hold a Black Hawk County town hall meeting to release their blueprint for education.

The blueprint, “One Unshakable Vision: World-Class Schools for Iowa,” dictates long-term policy changes that builds on strategies used by high-peforming education systems.

The plan includes propositions to improve teaching, revamp teacher pay and develop high-stakes, end-of-course exams for core subjects such as algebra, biology, English and U.S. history/ U.S. government.

This meeting, which will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the CFHS auditorium, will give citizens an opportunity to voice their opinions on the propositions.

The event is free and open to the public, and it will be the only local chance for students, teachers and parents have to shape the plan before it is presented to the Iowa legislature.

We strongly encourage all to attend this event and help shape the future of Iowa education.
