The 2016 Election Episode

About This Episode

The 2016 election is finally here, but what do this year's races have to do with education policy in America?

In this episode, we take a closer look at some of 2016's most important races with the help of an excellent voter's guide created by Education Week. Congressional races, gubernatorial elections, and ballot measures will all be a lot more fun to talk about than the race between Hillary and Trump. And when there's no more to be said about this week's ballot, never fear - ECOT founder Bill Lager is spending less this year on political contributions, and the American Academy of Pediatrics has some new advice for parents who are concerned about their children's "screen time".
