2016 Election Focus: Education

CC0 Public Domain

Monday, August 29


School begins in an election year. So we zero in on what candidates are saying about education. At the presidential level, the focus has been on pre-K and higher education. Here, the governor has been touting raises for teachers while his challenger points to decreased classroom spending. Clinton is juggling the need to placate teachers and unions versus those who want change. Trump hasn’t said much at all. We look at education in the 2016 election.
