Here’s a summary of what Obama and Romney said on education during the first Presidential debate. I first posted this information as a sequence of tweets.
It supports what I wrote earlier – educators should vote Democrat this election, because Obama has a vision of education building a core of strength into the USA, but Romney gives education little thought.
#Obama wants to create 100000 #math and #science teaching jobs and 2M college places http://bit.ly/OEd37Y #president #debate
- class of 42 children using 10yo textbooks sitting on the floor. “not a recipe for growth, not how USA was built”
#obama http://bit.ly/SyNLY6 #Obama believes “America needs more teachers, creating a better trained workforce and more jobs” http://bit.ly/T3nxyu
#Romney says “I love teachers” but #Obama says “Romney’s proposed tax cuts mean cuts to education” http://bit.ly/SDZu3c #obama “Programs that ensure people have jobs at the end of their education are important and need continued funding” http://bit.ly/OEgXxH
