The U.S. Elections & Education: Part 1

National Press Club • Washington, D.C.

Now that the White House race has narrowed to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, how is education playing out as an issue in the campaign? Will it prove an important fault line between the Democratic and Republican candidates? Will Trump offer any details to contrast with Clinton’s extensive set of proposals from early childhood to higher education? What are the potential implications for schools and colleges depending on who wins the White House? Also, what other races this fall should be on the radar of journalists, whether elections for Congress, state legislatures, or governor?

Join the Education Writers Association and the National Press Club’s Newsmaker Committee for a two-hour forum on Tuesday, Aug. 30, designed to help busy education and political journalists better understand and more effectively cover education in the 2016 campaign.
