Democrat State Rep. Traci Ehlert did not hide her feelings — or her party’s feelings — on whether Christians should be involved in public schools.

“God, church, Christianity got brought up a lot, which I don’t think really belongs in the public school conversation,” she said. “If you’re worried about that, then you probably don’t need to be attending a public school.”


Ehlert then laughed at a mom’s concerns over sexually explicit, inappropriate, vulgar books being in their child’s school and used as classroom reading material.

“She was kind of still continuing her complaint that she has with her school board and them not taking one of her book things seriously,” Ehlert said before laughing off the concern.

Ehlert served on the Iowa House subcommittee hearing on the school transparency/school choice bill proposed by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds.

  1. When is she gonna start to represent the people? Of course the answer is never. How did she ever get elected? Is no one
    paying attention? Or maybe a better question is who is voting?
