Lawmakers discuss education reform at Friday’s luncheon
• Iowa Sen. Amy Sinclair will not likely vote for current education reform bill in Senate because it doesn't address student achievement
Iowa Sen. Amy Sinclair and Rep. Joel Fry said Friday they are both on board with approving legislation this year that does away with 180 instructional days currently required by schools and change that to 1,080 instructional hours.
“This change helps turn control back to the local school systems so they can stand on their personal preference as to how to educate and keep kids in the classroom,” Sinclair said Friday during a legislative luncheon at Lakeside Casino. “I think most everyone in the Senate is on board with this change.”
Fry worked closely with the calendar days vs. hours portion of the bill in the Iowa House. That independent bill passed out of the House 84-16 earlier this month.
