Caffeinated Thoughts contributor (and my friend and coworker at American Principles Project) Eric Goranson was appointed by Iowa Governor Terry Branstad to the State Board of Education. Let me be the first to publicly congratulate him. This is huge since he is a parent of kids enrolled in Christian school and a school choice advocate. I don’t know if he is the first in these circumstances to be appointed to the Board, but he’s got to be the first one in 12 years or so.
Now he needs to be confirmed by the Senate. No sweat!
