Iowa house may approve education measure

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Education reform is expected to come before the Iowa house this week.

Most expect lawmakers to approve a measure that includes new student tests for third and 11th graders and stricter standards for college students going to school to be teachers, requiring them to have a 3.0 grade point average.

The house could take up the matter Tuesday.  The senate's priorities are different, and it's not clear whether the legislature will agree on a plan.
