Plan Offers Iowa Families Greater Choice in Education
Des Moines, IA - Today the Iowa Chapter of the National Coalition for Public School Options (NCPSO) announced its support for Governor Terry Branstad’s blueprint for transforming Iowa’s education system.
Including such initiatives as greater access to charter schools, online education, and innovative learning models, the Branstad-Reynolds administration’s plan gives parents greater choice in education for their children.
“Just as each child is different, so is each child’s learning needs. While Iowa has long prided itself on its public education, it is time to raise the bar. Giving parents public school options will help ensure each Iowa child is getting the best education available to them,” said Briana LeClaire, NCPSO President.
In statehouses around the country Governors are working to improve education through high-quality innovative programs that have proven successful. Allowing Iowa families access to these options is a step in the right direction to once again make Iowa a leader in public education.
