Iowa Political Alert: Don't let Iowa's small schools fall to the Des Moinescentrics

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

Yes, yes, there are no doubt some inefficiencies with smaller schools
in Iowa. And as a resident of the county seat of Carroll, I've often
wondered if would make sense to fold some of the area schools into our
district. By the numbers, K-12 consolidation, voluntary or forced,
would seem logical many places in Iowa. But having spent a great deal
of time in small schools in Carroll and Story counties, there is an
intangible value associated with these environments, the seamless
connections they provide between classroom and home and town.
