The 2016 Election News

The state races and faces that matter for education

EdNC's coverage of the general elections begins today. We will focus on the three races that will have the biggest impact on education policy: the governor, lieutenant governor, and state superintendent. Today, we begin with an overview of each candidate and how each office fits into our world of education. Tomorrow, we examine the races through the lenses of the candidates, the polls, the issues, the voters, and the money. Over the next several weeks, we will invite each of these candidates to share their thoughts about education with you on a podcast, and we will conduct an analysis of their positions on the issues. We have a surprise in store for election day so stayed tuned to our coverage. If there is any other information you would like to know about the candidates or the issues, please let us know in the comments.
