A video crew recently spent two days in Ottumwa filming students to be part of a campaign to promote public education by the Iowa Association of School Boards. The campaign was launched this week during their annual convention. The goal is to focus attention on the future of Iowa public schools and rally support for investments in public education.
Iowa’s future leaders, innovators and citizens are its children. They are “The Promise of Iowa.” Their future is created every day by Iowa public schools. The future is also here in Ottumwa, among the students walking in our halls. Several students are highlighted in the video as well as still photos on the Promise of Iowa website at http://promiseiowa.org.
