Administrators of a rural school in far northern Iowa believe technology can temper the pain rising from Iowa’s lost schools crisis. And they took their message to the Capitol this month. “Everyone is mourning the loss of their schools when, instead, we should focus on the future of education and how to revolutionize education,” said John Carver, superintendent of Howard-Winneshiek schools. Carver and other employees from Howard-Winneshiek advocate that Iowa promote and invest in broadband so that every corner of the state has access to high-speed Internet. Many Iowa schools are already connected to the Iowa Communications Network, a high-speed fiber optic network run by the state. That’s a bright spot for Iowa.
