Representing the Candidates on Education

In a debate in the Cowin Conference Center at Teachers College on October 15, Jon Schnur and Phil Handy, top education advisers to President Barack Obama and his Republican challenger, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, staked out clear philosophical differences over the role of the federal government in funding education and incentivizing reforms in testing and teacher preparation. Titled “Taking the Election to School,” the debate spotlighted a topic many felt had received short shrift during the campaign. The event – this year’s Phyllis Kossoff Lecture on Education and Policy – was moderated by TC President Susan Fuhrman.
