After a dizzying election season that included 36 gubernatorial and legislative contests in all but four states, not to mention key campaigns for the U.S. Senate, you’ve seen the results by now. And there’s a chance you’ve tallied up how many Democrats and Republicans control governor’s mansions and seats in Congress.
But what do the results mean for education policy in 2015 and beyond?
Join us Nov. 12 for After the Storm: What the 2014 Election Results Mean for K-12 Policy, a live Education Week event at Gallup headquarters in Washington. Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., retiring after four decades in Congress, will reflect on his tenure and what the election results mean for education in the next Congress.
We’ll also hear from a variety of education policy experts both on the Hill and in the think-tank world, including Roberto J. Rodríguez, the deputy assistant to President Barack Obama for education; Brandon Busteed, the executive director of Gallup Education; and Carmel Martin, the executive vice president for policy at the Center for American Progress.
Staring at 1 p.m. on Nov. 12, you can watch the event live online. Just click on the “After the Storm” link above to watch.
