Storm Lake could get a big boost if an effort by the Iowa Senate to extend extra funding to school districts trying to teach immigrants English. A bill out of the Education Committee would extend the number of years districts receive extra funding from five years to seven years. That’s about how long it takes with hard work and remedial instruction to learn English well enough to excel in other subject areas.
