Iowa teachers union seeks school funding boost
DES MOINES (AP) — The state teachers’ union called Wednesday for lawmakers to approve legislation that would increase state aid to school districts for the coming school year.
A staffer for the Iowa State Education Association told senators at a subcommittee meeting that one rural district would likely have to layoff teachers if lawmakers don’t increase aid to schools.
“We’ve heard anecdotal evidence from one rural district that if allowable growth were set at zero, it would see a 13 percent layoff,” said Melissa Peterson, a government relations staffer.
