Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal
January 29, 2015
The session took a bad turn this week.
When it comes to supporting Iowa’s kids, Governor Branstad and House Republicans missed the mark.
Republicans are offering Iowa families overcrowded classrooms, fewer teachers, fewer advanced classes, and more outdated materials.
That won’t help grow and strengthen Iowa’s middle class.
Senate Democrats know Iowans want better for our children and our communities.
Iowans are telling us that our state’s future depends on high-quality local schools.
This week and next, we will continue visiting schools in our districts and holding listening posts.
After that, the Senate will act in a way that truly makes Iowa schools our #1 priority.
