Governor signs law to remove another barrier for school choice. Happy?


Yesterday Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed a new school choice bill into law.

One of the first things this law does is remove the March 1st Open Enrollment deadlines for schools with voluntary diversity plans.

What that means is simple. With immediate effect, parents or guardians who have students already enrolled into a voluntary diversity school district can open enroll into a new district for the 2021-2022 school year.

The new law stops school districts from using voluntary diversity plans as an excuse to deny open enrollment. Previously, transfer requests could be denied simply to maintain the diversity mix of a school.

Clearly school choice advocates are happy, while those opposed are concerned that money will leave a district because of it.

How about you? Are you happy with the new law?
