Classroom teachers walking out of schools across the nation have made education a more prominent issue in the 2020 presidential campaign than it ever was in past presidential elections. Multiple candidates are proposing free college, universal pre-kindergarten programs, and raising teacher pay, and frontrunners have jumped into debates over charter schools. Come to this year’s Education Caucus to share your perspectives on how candidates and campaigns are addressing (or not addressing) the full range of education issues they should, and learn what fellow education advocates are doing to influence the debates.
