Charles City, Iowa – Representative Todd Prichard spoke to the Charles City School Board earlier this week about education-related legislative items in the state house.  He says he doesn’t expect much change in policy or education initiatives.

 

He added his main concern is tax cuts could lead to program funding.  Prichard said the state passed a bipartisan bill called the lunch shaming bill.  It does not allow students to be pointed out because they can’t afford their lunches.

 

Prichard says he there won’t be much funding changes this year but says there initiatives could have bipartisan support like metal health, reading programs and expanding job training in Iowa.
