Hillary Clinton on K-12?
Now that it is official that Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for president, what are her view on education? Her past endeavors hold some clues. Reportedly, during Bush’s 1989 summit on education she was seated next to him and urged the need for early-childhood education. She researched educational opportunities for migrant children in her 20’s and worked with an organization that would later become the Children’s Defense Fund. She has been a fan of after school programs such as the 21st Century Community Learning Center program. She is in favor of charter schools and was against merit pay for teachers based on test scores.
