Reporting on Education
As part of our determined effort to keep focused on candidates’ pledges, beliefs and what they mean, this week we turn to how Americans teach and learn.
Hillary Clinton has spent decades talking about the needs of children and touting the benefits of early education. It’s a new subject for Donald Trump.
For the first time in U.S. history, Americans may be about to elect a president whose signature issue is early childhood.
In a recent speech at a manufacturing plant in Michigan, Hillary Clinton got big applause for this line: “A four-year degree should not be the only path to a good job in America."
At the Democratic National Convention this week, Bill Clinton gave a shout-out to a program called Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youth.
Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, loves to tell voters that her administration would pick up the policy baton from President Barack Obama.
Just how much does he have in common with Donald Trump when it comes to schools and education? Definitely not nothing. Let's take a look.
What do you think of the candidates' positions on college tuition and student finance?
