These are the challenges and opportunities facing public education in Iowa.
Fully funding public schools is the only way to ensure all students get the education they deserve, regardless of ZIP code.

Here's what you can do to support public education where you live.
For every child to have the opportunity to succeed, politicians must fight for quality public schools. Pledge to help us hold your elected officials accountable to Iowa's students!
