//Iowa Democratic Party Kicks Off the “Reynolds Record: Education Cuts Tour” in Burlington

Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price is traveling the state as part of the “Reynolds Record: Education Cuts Tour” shedding light on how Governor Reynolds has continued to underfund public education and shortchange the next generation of Iowans

On Tuesday, Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price is traveling to Burlington to shed light on how Governor Reynolds has prioritized wasteful corporate giveaways at the expense of Iowa’s students and schools.

Reynolds’ underfunding of K-12 has decimated Iowa’s once top education system– in the past 5 years 64 school buildings have been forced to close, class sizes have increased, and close to 200 education jobs have been cut — wholly shortchanging the next generation of Iowans.

Teachers, students, and their parents deserve a governor who is fighting for them, and it’s clear Kim Reynolds is not that person.

Members of the press who are interested in attending events with Chair Price should RSVP to Sydney McDevitt at smcdevitt@iowademocrats.org.
