  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...
Both chambers of the Iowa Legislature passed legislation to create an education savings account for all K-12 students early Tuesday, priming the Hawkeye State to become the second state to enact a universal school choice program.

The legislation, championed by Gov. Kim Reynolds (R-IA), passed the state House on a 54-45 vote and the state Senate on a 31-18 vote.

Under the provisions of the legislation, which now heads to Reynolds's desk for her signature, all K-12 students will be afforded over $7,000 each year by 2025 through an education savings account that can be used to cover all sorts of education-related expenses, including private school tuition. Reynolds may sign the bill as soon as Tuesday.

It must be a good thing if only for  Teacher Unions and the Iowa rat party being opposed to it!

Iowa Gov Kim Reynolds signs historic school choice bill: 'We will fund students not systems'
Iowa is third state to pass school choice measure that expands to every student in state

By Joshua Q. Nelson | Fox News

  Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed an unprecedented school choice bill called the Students First Act on Tuesday, allowing any Iowa student to use public money to pay for private school tuition or other expenses.

"For the first time, we will fund students not systems!" Reynolds said on Twitter.

"Parents, not the government, can now choose the education setting best suited to their child regardless of their income or zip code. Iowa has affirmed that educational freedom belongs to all!"
