Iowa Education



I didn't get to a pen close enough to get the quote as accurate as I'd like. Some (state elected official) made a really neat quote in support of passing the $.80 cigarette tax hike. Since Iowa has a projected increase in tax revenue for 2006, the impetus for passage is losing steam.

"We can't expect to maintain a world-class education based on third-world funding." That's not really exact enough to justify the quotes... I will pursue and adjust.
