The IAAE continues to try to serve all kinds of alternative education programs. The expansive nature of the alternative education movement, with its growing number of students and educational programs, present significant challenges to the IAAE today. Recent legislation ensures a larger role for alternative education in Iowa’s future. One generalization upon which every member in the association can agree is the single sentence in Article II of the IAAE constitution: “Public alternative education serves to ensure that every young person may find a path to the educational goals of the community.” This hope of the founders still defines the mission of the IAAE today.
