It had been my intention to put the Democratic and Republican Platforms side-by-side for comparison. Unfortunately I've been unable to get my hands on the Democratic Platform. Instead I'll look at the Presidential candidates in terms of education.
Interestingly, there's not much difference in President Obama and Mr. Romney when it comes to education. They both like high stakes testing, tenure reform, performance pay, choice, etc. The biggest difference is in the area of vouchers -- Romney supports, Obama doesn't.
In a month we get to enter the ballot booth and make our selection. Be sure to vote!
