Education reform begins July 1
Iowa education reform finally has a path to follow.
"I'm kind of excited about this reform, and not just about the reform, but that they're looking at new things," said Karleen Stephens, superintendent of Diagonal Community Schools. "We can't use the same (things) that we did 100 years ago, and I'm excited that Iowa's looking into that."
Gov. Terry Branstad signed the new education reform bill into law June 3. The bill will become law July 1, the start of the 2013-14 school year.
