What will the 2012 election mean for education?

 

Time: 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM

Host: AEI.

 

Over the past four years, President Obama and Secretary of Education Arne
Duncan have touted a more expansive federal role in education, offering states waivers
from No Child Left Behind Act sanctions and championing common standards, more
rigorous teacher evaluation, higher education transparency and aggressive interventions
for low-performing schools. During a time of tight budgets and fierce debates over the
Common Core State Standards, student loans, gainful employment and reauthorization of
the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the results of the federal and
congressional elections will likely have a huge impact on the state of American schools
and colleges moving forward. Join us at AEI for a balanced discussion of what the 2012
election results will mean for the potential reauthorization of the ESEA, federal education
spending, state and local issues and other pressing concerns. For more information and to
