Branstand & Renoylds schedule education forums in Iowa

Posted:
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -

Governor Terry Branstad says he will hold 14 meetings across Iowa to hear what people think about how the state should change its kindergarten through high school education system.

Branstad will be joined by Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds for the meetings, which the governor says will help him prepare his election reform proposal for the 2013 legislative session.

Branstad pushed for an ambitious education agenda in the 2012 Legislature, but most of his proposals failed to pass.  Those failed plans included tougher requirements for teachers and new tests for students.

The meetings begin Tuesday at 10:30am at the Pocohantas High School in Pocahontas and continue until a September 13th gathering in Council Bluffs.
