Education Week’s Alyson Klein writes in that, while she knows we are all “bummed” the midterm elections are over, we should fear not—the 2020 presidential election is “right around the corner.” Klein says there is a “good chance that education could be a higher-profile-than-usual issue in what’s shaping up to be a large and unwieldy Democratic primary field.” To give readers a head start, she takes a look at the K-12 background of individual members of the emerging presidential candidate field.
