The National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as the “nation’s report card” showed extreme learning loss for children across the country as a result of pandemic lockdowns. According to the report, math scores saw their largest decreases ever and reading scores dropped to 1992 levels. Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, a champion for reopening schools, released the below statement.

State Sen. Liz Mathis voted against opening Iowa’s schools for in-person learning while Hinson championed in-person learning, according to Hinson’s campaign.

Mathis was critical of Gov. Kim Reynolds’ efforts to safely reopen Iowa schools.

“Liz Mathis and Nancy Pelosi wanted to keep our kids “learning”  behind screens while they fell behind and suffered. My very first bill in Congress was to help get our kids back in school – meanwhile, Liz Mathis voted to keep Iowa children locked out of class. While Liz always sides with the government, I’ll continue standing up for parents and families.” – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
