Obama vs. McCain (the advisers, that is)

Over at Education Week's Campaign K-12 blog, my colleague Alyson Klein sums up the forum today that featured education advisers from the Obama and McCain campaigns.

The gist? "They managed to cover a lot of ground without getting into a lot of specificity, in very campaign-like fashion," Alyson writes.

Former Arizona state schools' chief Lisa Graham Keegan represented McCain, while Jeanne Century, director of research and evaluation at the University of Chicago's Center for Elementary Mathematics and Science Education, appeared on behalf of the Obama camp. At the forum, hosted by the Association of Educational Publishers, the two delved into the subjects of merit pay, Reading First, and federal funding. Read Alyson's full summary here.
