Henig to Ed Week: Relief that education out of election

Education has been largely invisible this election cycle. Jeff Henig told Education Weekwhy that's a good thing:

"I think it's probably something of a relief for many," Henig wrote in an email. For instance, "the teacher unions expect to have better access to a Clinton administration than they did to Obama/Duncan, but that might be put at risk a bit if high campaign attention forced Hillary to demonstrate she is 'not in the pocket' of the unions.'"
