"OUR SCHOOLS AREN'T THE BEST ANYMORE, IT'S TIME WE ADMIT It and do something about it."
Unfortunately we’ve abdicated our commitment to being Number One in education as we used to be. I am the product of Red Oak High School and Simpson College in Indianola. I understand how important healthy, diverse education districts and colleges and universities are to Iowa. We can and should shift resources from investing in corporate giveaways and tax credits and back to public schools and private colleges. Our future depends on it and anyone who doesn't believe that doesn't believe in Iowa.
