Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds’ “school choice” plan is back. And it’s worse than ever.

The proposal unveiled this past week further expands the Republican governor’s efforts to divert state money for public schools to help pay private school tuition after previous versions of the plan were rejected in the Iowa House of Representatives the past two years.

Bring it to vote by the people of Iowa.


Why point the finger of irresponsibility at the governor? How about someone does a serious “in depth” look at HOW the money is being spent (or wasted) by each and every school district.






Uhhhh.....who was the Telegraph Herald endorsing for just about every race? Own it.


I love the statement, diverting state money, actually, it’s the taxpayers money and they should be able to spend it how they see fit, especially when it comes to their kids education. Competition is not a bad thing.
