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.
