Where Do The Presidential Candidates Stand on Special Education? #election2016
We have sent a questionnaire to the Republican and Democratic candidates for President of the United States. The questionnaire seeks their opinions on special education issues, some of which were suggested by our readers in response to one of our weekly questions. So far neither has responded. We will update with any responses we do receive.
In the meantime, here are some other indications of education positions: BallotPedia has set forth the 2016 presidential candidates' positions on education as they have described them themselves here. Here is a summary of key education positions of the candidates by Education Week. This article in The Atlantic concerns education policies of the two major party candidates. Please let us know your reactions. You may also find some information on the candidates' positions on their own campaign websites. How important is the position of the presidential candidates on education to you?
