As his Republican peers in other states search for ways to cut public school funding, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad is charting a different course. Branstad, who was elected in 2010 as part of a resurgent GOP, has made proposals many in the GOP would sneer at: raising minimum teacher salaries and offering incentive pay for teachers who take on more responsibilities _ all by tapping $187 million in new school funding.
