  • 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.

We are two countries now.

Go with the army you got.

We have wandered into the territory of dictatorship.

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

:yowsa: Money needs to follow students not institutions!

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
