Iowa looking to recruit minority teachers


DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The state is working to recruit and retain minority teachers.

Tuesday Governor Chet Culver signed a bill requiring education officials at the state's public and private colleges to study the issue.

Chet Culver says it's important to broaden diversity in Iowa's teaching profession.

The Board of Regents will provide the staffing for the study.

They're scheduled to deliver a report to the legislature in January.
