Charts: Diminished Debate Role For Education (So Far)
Four years ago, EdWeek estimated that just 3 percent of the primary debates addressed issues of education. (Was it the number of questions or the amount of time? I don't remember & can't find the link.)
All is not lost, however.
First of all, who knows what kind of crazy stuff would have come out if the Republican candidates had talked more about education?
Also, there's still the general election ahead of us.
Predicted debate questions: college for everyone, homeschooling, NCLB waivers, teaching to the test, parent trigger.
