WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) released the following statement today after learning that the U.S. Department of Education had approved $96 million in funding for Iowa. Iowa applied for this funding after the U.S. Senate advanced a measure that provided $10 billion for an education jobs fund to help prevent major teacher layoffs in the coming school year. This effort was modeled after legislation Senator Harkin introduced on April 14th called the Keep Our Educators Working Act.
