Where do the presidential candidates stand on education?
posted by: Alana | October 28, 2016, 05:08 PM   


We're getting down to the wire and early voting is already in full swing across the nation. There is so much at stake in this presidential race from education reform initiatives to school funding, yet thousands of Americans are still undecided heading into the 2016 elections. It's absolutely imperative that educators make well informed decisions at the voting booth this November.    


AAE is proudly non-partisan, does not endorse candidates, or tell members how to vote.  We do, however, urge each and every educator to brush up on the candidates' stances on education at the federal, state, AND local levels before heading to the polls.  


Below are links to each of the presidential candidate's campaign pages:


Hillary Clinton on Education - Democratic Candidate


Gary Johnson on Education - Libertarian Candidate


Evan McMullin on Education - Independent Candidate


Jill Stein on Education - Green Party Candidate


Donald Trump on Education - Republican Candidate


What education initiatives do you hope to see the next president focus on?

I am tired of hearing that teachers in college are influencing their students. This should not be allowed. Teachers do not have first amendment rights in the classroom. Teachers have a position of influence over a captive audience of students. Teachers should be disciplined for talking in class about their personal views on religion and politics. It is also highly inappropriate to talk about their sexual orientation.
