Henig on Clinton and Trump Education Plans

Last week Jeff Henig spoke to Education Week about post-Obama education reform:

"Here's the overall take on the state of this movement from Jeff Henig, a political science professor at Columbia University, who has studied the intersection of education and politics. "It overreached and its paying a price," he said. "But I don't think they are all going to disappear."" (Full article here.)

Now he specifies what to expect from Clinton and Trump:

"Jeffrey Henig, a professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, who focuses on education and politics, doesn't expect K-12 policy to get much more of the spotlight between now and Nov. 8.

"I don't see education as being all that central to this election," he said. "Trump is so mushy on everything. It's hard to see how [his presidency] would play out on education. I think Hillary is pretty much in the clear to stake out whatever position on education that she thinks is right and is not going to hurt" with any faction of the Democratic constituency."
