The Iowa senate has approved a beefed up version of Governor Branstad's education overhaul.
The proposal would hike teacher salaries and incentive pay for teachers who take on leadership roles, like mentoring. Several weeks ago, the house approved a scaled back version of the Governor's plan, which would make incentive plans optional. Now, lawmakers have to try and compromise to come up with one plan both sides can agree on.
