How Will the Midterms Impact Education?

On a special edition of Research Minutes, Drew University researcher and renowned education policy expert Patrick McGuinn speaks with CPRE Director Jonathan Supovitz about the 2018 midterm elections and what they could mean for public education.

How would a so-called “Blue Wave” – or Republic victories in the House and Senate – impact issues like federal and state education funding, student civil rights, school infrastructure, or recent proposals for “tuition-free” college?

McGuinn also discusses the agenda items that will be facing state and federal lawmakers regardless of party control, including teacher pay, pension funding, and higher education accountability.
