Loebsack Visits Aldo Leopold Middle School

After planting a flower in the Aldo Leopold Middle School outdoor classroom yesterday morning, Congressman Dave Loebsack gave teachers, the principal, and superintendent an opportunity to ask questions and voice their opinions on certain issues that were education related.


One issue that Principal Brian Gravel had, was about the way students were measured with the No Child Left Behind Legislation…

Lobesack agreed that there needs to be some sort of growth model and said that when the law was written, someone should have seen that it didn’t make sense statistically…

Loebsack was recently named Ranking Member of the Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education Subcommittee, and is visiting many schools in our region to gather opinions on the current No Child Left Behind legislation.

Lobesack also made a stop at the Keokuk Middle School yesterday.
