'A step backwards': DMPS students protest education-related bills at Iowa Capitol
One measure, House File 813, would establish a new method of creating charter schools in Iowa. It would allow a founding group to apply directly to the state Department of Education to form a charter, rather than going through a local school board. The bill also would retain the current method of applying through a local school board.
