(Dec. 8, 2011 – 11:30 a.m.) Ames Community School Superintendent Tim Taylor had some expert advice for area legislators who joined Story County school administrators and board members for a forum Wednesday in Nevada.

During the forum’s hour-long question-and-answer session, the discussion of Gov. Terry Branstad’s proposal for education reform left less than five minutes for an exchange covering other legislative priorities for the 2012 Iowa General Assembly.
