DES MOINES, Iowa – Legislative Democrats are warning that proposals for funding state assistance to local elementary and secondary schools will drive up the size of classes and force officials to delay the purchase of books and classroom materials as well as blocking the use of new technologies.

“Under your plan for public schools, property taxes will continue to go up, class sizes will continue to increase, positions will continue to be cut or unfilled, items like textbook purchases will be pushed off for yet another year and technology will be put at the bottom of the purchase orders,” said Rep. Patti Ruff, D-McGregor, ranking member of the House Education Committee.
