Thanks for your perspective. I feel hopeless for our state, as the Governor and legislators rip apart our system of educating students. We are heading for the bottom and it makes me sick. At 67, I can't muster the energy to fight all the Republican 'undoings' in our state and country.

Thank you. I’m worried about the future of public education in Iowa. An educated populace is the foundation of democracy (paraphrase)

That foundation is being chipped away. Teachers used to be honored. During the Covid shutdowns they had to go way beyond the call of duty. Now they are being criticized.

I am glad my grandchildren don’t live in Iowa …. how sad is that?!?!?
