  • Iowa, once a leader in K-12 education, has fallen to the middle of the pack.  
  • Per-pupil funding has outpaced the national average in the past 30 years,  
  • Yet, educational outcomes are stagnant, begging the question:

Is there a better funding model?

On February 19
a panel of professionals will weigh in.

 

Mark Jacobs, founder of Reaching Higher Iowa, former CEO of Reliant Energy and Chairman of the Board for KIPP Houston Public Schools

 


Dr. Brad Buck, superindentent of Waukee Community Schools and former director
of the Iowa Department of Education, 


  Shawn Snyder and Patti Schroeder

 representing the 
Iowa Association of School 
Boards
