Gore Visits Iowa To Discuss Education

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AllPolitics, July 9) - Vice President Al Gore visited Clarke College Thursday to talk about education and grant programs.

Iowa is traditionally the first caucus state in the presidential campaign, which makes it a high priority for Gore to visit. Gore is expected to seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2000.

Over 82,000 adults will earn $46.7 million in lifetime learning tax credits as part of a new federal education program unveiled Wednesday in Washington. About a quarter of the students at Clarke College are adults.

Also, Gore announced that Hope Scholarships will benefit 67,000 Iowa students with $61.7 million in funding.

The vice president will travel to Des Moines Thursday afternoon to meet with residents at a local community center to discuss welfare-to-work programs. Later in the evening, Gore will attend a reception for the Democratic candidate for governor, Tom Vilsack.
