Rep. Nate Willems, ranking member of the House Education Committee responds to Governor Branstad’s Preschool Plan that was released this morning.

“The Governor’s plan ends the state’s high quality preschool initiative for 20,000 Iowa four year olds. It  will reduce access to preschool in communities across Iowa and make it more difficult for middle class families.

With no certified teacher, the Governor’s plan gives parents no guarantee of quality instruction for their children. With no reliable statewide program, school districts will also be forced to end partnerships with private preschool providers.”
