Krusty Konservative: Nussle on Education Funding
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
The other day Jim Nussle met with the folks at the Institute for Tomorrow's Workforce to discuss education in Iowa. The ITW is a group created by the Legislature to recommend innovative and bold ways to improve Iowa's education system. Nussle was asked where cuts should be made to deal with budget shortfalls. He responded with, "I think there's a lot of room for consolidation of leadership and administration and bureaucracy in education." The Des Moines Register points out the following facts: Iowa has 325 full-time superintendents and 1,225 principals. The state has 365 school districts, and 1,532 public school buildings.
