The AHA’s letter opposing HF 2544, a bill that “directly encroaches on the authority and expertise of the members of the Iowa State Board of Education,” was featured in local and general news coverage of the legislation. “If enacted, this measure would disrupt the implementation of Iowa’s current academic standards. The result is likely to disorient Iowa teachers and do a disservice to Iowa students, all while elbowing Iowans out of their own educational policymaking,” the Gazette quoted. The letter was also referenced by Bleeding Heartland and BNN.
