Letter to the editor:
As an educator, I value lawmakers who value education as a top priority and fight for much needed funds that make our schools more efficient. Children are our future, and they deserve a top-notch, world-class education. Mary Jo Wilhelm agrees, and she has been a tireless advocate for her district to make sure every student receives a quality education at every level. As a state legislator, she is focused on keeping tuition affordable at community colleges, state universities and private colleges.
Iowa’s public schools, are starving from years of underfunding and every year I have spend hundreds of dollars out of my own pocket for supplies. Mary Jo Wilhelm is dedicated to adequate school funding that will ensure small class sizes that give students the one-on-one contact that they need. The seeds for growth and prosperity are planted in the classroom, and I am pleased to see a legislator who recognizes this.
As a teacher, I know that Senator Wilhelm is in my corner. A vote for Wilhelm is a vote for education.
