Your Roadmap to the 2010 Elections

By Sean Cavanagh — October 28, 2010 1 min read

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.

For an overview, check out the story and podcast that my colleague Alyson Klein and I put together as part of our election coverage this week.

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.
