Jack Hatch on Education
Put quality public education at top of investment list
My daughter Caslon had a great experience in Des Moines schools. We were lucky enough to be sending our daughter to school at a time when teachers were valued, the value of an education was prioritized and Iowa schools were best-in-the-nation places
for student growth, experimentation and real learning.
Iowa doesn't have mountains, beaches or skyline. The things that make Iowa's quality of life attractive are the things we invest in, and quality public education should be at the top of the list.
My goal is to restore excellence to Iowa schools by investing in the best teachers, the best school buildings and the best curriculum. I have a specific plan to begin the comeback for education in Iowa.
