IA Education Officials Propose Extended Learning

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
   Education officials in Iowa are hoping the state will support a pilot program aimed at helping students learn before and after school.
   The state Department of Education says the extended learning pilot project could boost Iowa's graduation rate. The department submitted a proposal for the $1 million program in November, but Gov. Terry Branstad hasn't said whether he will support it.
   The Des Moines Register says a report commissioned by the state and prepared by a consulting firm recommends that the proposed program focus on high-need students.
   Proponents of such programs say the measure is further evidence that support for out-of-school learning is growing in Iowa.
