Last week, I issued a call for a special session to overturn Gov. Branstad’s $56 million school funding veto in order to make educating our kids a top priority again.
This means Western Dubuque will lose $333,599 for the upcoming school year. If we don’t take action, school leaders all over Iowa have told us it will result in larger class sizes, fewer quality teachers, and higher property taxes.
Our schools have been in this school funding crisis for almost two years now. Enough is enough.
I hope State Rep. Brian Moore will do what’s best for the kids in Cascade by joining me to overturn the Governor’s veto in a special session.
No more excuses. Iowa’s kids deserve it.
