Election Night Post-Mortem

What an election night! Two candidates who, at one point or another, were practically relegated to the political graveyard had big nights.

Some education highlights:

Alexander Russo wonders whether Sen. Barack Obama’s wishy-washy stance on private school vouchers hurt him in Ohio, which is home both to powerful teachers’ unions and a state-funded voucher program in Cleveland.

Obama, in his speech last night in Texas, pledges that no child should attend school where there are more rats than computers.

And finally, we must bid farewell to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the affable Republican who actually made education a campaign issue.
