State Education Official Elections

This ad makes me somewhat sorry that we don’t elect the Director of the Iowa Department of Education.

Aside from school board, there are no elections in Iowa that focus entirely on education issues. With so many decisions with regard to public schools in Iowa being made at the state level, it might be interesting to see which issues emerged as campaign issues and to see how Iowans weigh in on them specifically.

On the other hand, maybe this ad just seemed interesting as a break from all the Bruce Braley and Joni Ernst ads. . . .
