Malcolm Price Lab School closure.
We’re deeply disappointed in the Board of Regents’ decision today to close the Price Lab School. Their decision was made without any input from parents, students, teachers, or others in our community. This lack of transparency in an era of open government is alarming.
There’s no plan in place to help the students and families currently enrolled at Price Lab or provide the quality training for students at UNI who are training to be teachers.
With so many unanswered questions, there was no reason to rush this decision and close Price Lab. We’ve heard from hundreds of Iowans about the closing and they deserved to be heard before this decision was made.
We’re going to review every legislative option we have and work to keep the school open.
