Senate committee OKs education reform bill
DES MOINES (AP) — A Senate panel approved a beefed-up version of the governor’s education reform plan that requires increased teacher pay and institutes leadership programs.
The Senate Education Committee approved the measure Thursday by a 9 to 6 vote, with all Democrats in support and Republicans opposed.
Bill sponsor Sen. Herman Quirmbach of Ames says the Senate’s version would cost $190 million. That’s more expensive than Republican Gov. Terry Branstad’s plan.
