2018 Resolutions on Education

Ensuring Education Excellence

Whereas education is the cornerstone of successful communities and strong citizens;

Therefore let it be resolved that Iowa will meet its education obligations to its citizens and not allow the implementation of school vouchers that redirect money away from our public schools.

Ensuring Equity and Excellence in Rural Schools

Whereas there is no reason that Iowa citizens in rural areas should receive lower-quality education, or have less availability of quality education, than their non-rural counterparts;

Therefore let it be resolved that Iowa be committed to and fund rural education services and facilities that are the highest quality and meet or exceed the same standards of non-rural schools.
