Everything you ever wanted to know about education policy in the 2010 election can be found on a new, 50-state map we’ve put together on edweek.org.
It explains how education is playing out in the 37 governors’ races, seven state superintendents’ contests, and closely watched congressional campaigns around the country. It has key ballot measures, too, and an accompanying slideshow that looks at the top federal races to watch.
Recurrent themes on the campaign trail this fall: federal spending vs. state and local control, and the sorry state of education budgets, as in, how to stave off cuts, or make do with less. Find our coverage of those issues and more in the 2010 election collection. Five days and counting until Nov. 2.
