DES MOINES (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad said Monday that he wants to boost starting salaries for teachers as part of his newly released education plan, but his stance on school funding may run into resistance.

Just before the opening of the 85th session of the Iowa Legislature, Branstad unveiled his plan to spend $187 million over five years on K-12 education. The proposal calls for, among other things, increasing minimum pay for entry-level teachers from $28,000 to $35,000 annually and offering tuition assistance to aspiring teachers.
