As the state Legislature was nearing approval of significant changes to Iowa’s public school system, the Iowa Department of Education director accepted a job as superintendent of a Colorado school district.
As part of a massive budget balancing, one school district is now getting rid of most of the foreign language teachers and replacing them with computers.
The school board in Eagle County voted Wednesday afternoon to lay off nearly 15 percent of its staff. They are drastic cuts for what has been a very successful district.
