The Presidential Sweepstakes 2008: Education with a Whimper, Not with a Bang
Doyle, Denis
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n2 p88-89 Oct 2008
In March, the author invited the three leading presidential contenders--Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama--to submit essays about their educational platforms. Obama submitted an essay while McCain did not. Due to seemingly lack of response from the candidates, the author concluded that no one is sure what to do at the national level, least of all John McCain. In this article, the author explores the possible reasons why the presidential campaign of 2008 has generated so little discussion about education on either side of the aisle.
