A recent study compiled by the research firm GoodCall ranked Iowa City No. 27 out of 267 communities because of its affordable living, healthy job market and strong educational values.
“We are proud that Iowa City is home to many talented educators who are making a difference in the lives of our children,” Iowa City Mayor Jim Throgmorton said. “We hope to continue to attract top teaching talent to our vibrant community.”
