Education proposal from a local perspective
Editor's note: This is the second of a two-part series on education reform. Please see Wednesday's paper for the first part focusing on an outline of the proposal.
Gov. Terry Branstad has proposed education reform across the state of Iowa. The proposal includes stipulations such as increasing teacher base pay from $28,000 to $35,000, creating a teacher career ladder and forgiving loans of up to $20,000 of new education graduates teaching in Iowa.
