Like the West Virginia Legislature, the General Assembly in Iowa struggled with education reform. Never have American taxpayers spent as much money to be this unhappy about their schools.
But unlike West Virginia, Iowa included home schooling into the mix.
It began with Isaiah McGree who emailed Gov. Terry Branstad's staff to ask about including home schooling as part of the reform.
"The Branstad administration had misgivings about the amendments, emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request show, but by May, the governor was firmly on board," the Quad Cities Advocate reported.

President Obama and the Senate must be very careful in their Fed chair selection.
