Education Policy in Iowa

These public panels are part of the undergraduate course, "Equality, Opportunity and Public Policy in America," supported by the Public Policy Center as part of the Forkenbrock Series on Public Policy.

The undergraduate course itself is a “Big Ideas” class. It is an investigation—drawing on the insights of a number of disciplines — of a big problem, or idea, or question. For us, that big question is this: What does the government do, and why? The course focuses in particular on:

  • What does the government do to ensure economic security or well-being?
  • What does the government do to create or ensure equality of opportunity?

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Leslie Gannon in advance at or 319-335-6817.
