iowa Republican Governor Candidates' Debate

besides pre-school, how do we get the best money for our money in education...

rr...iowans highly value a good high quality education. as our local schools go, so go our towns...main streets. state should focus resources we have on public safety, access to justice, econ development and education should focus on things most important to children. my daughter is a teacher in waukee. she is here today. we need to reduce some of mandates on some of school districts. we need to reduce some of administrative and overhead costs. reward good teachers. have uniform assessments.

bvp...need to get arms around k-12 education. i used to be a teacher. i used to a principal. in the 1990s we started growing bureaucracy. need to simplify. simplify the funding back to local school districts. how about we do something novel? let's let the teachers teach.
