Iowa bill would ban extra credit for school supplies

One Iowa lawmaker has had enough with extra credit being given to students who bring in Kleenex.

While it's unclear how widespread the practice is in Iowa schools, State Rep. Chip Baltimore, R-Boone, introduced legislation that would ban schools from issuing extra points to students who bring in school supplies.

"Is it going to be a world-changing piece of legislation? No," Baltimore told the Register. "But it's one small sign of how we are devaluing the educational process in this state and country."
