Whether it's education funding or school improvement, there are clear differences between the President's policies and Romney's proposals.  Find out how President Obama's policies help the middle class afford education and much more:

Obama's plans for education are better.

There are some things that shouldn't be cut and education is one of them!

Thanks for sharing!  I agree that the choice is very clear.  romney/ryan does not value education.  Apparently it's one of their favorite areas to cut funding and oppose reform and aid.  President Obama clearly has the best education plan and really puts his words into action, as opposed to romney/ryan who SAY they value education and then illustrate that by slashing funding and opposing reform, all while telling people they should just borrow the money from their parents or work three jobs.  The opportunity to get a quality education should not be limited to the very wealthy.

I am a former teacher and my husband is still in education and we have seen first hand how damaging Bush's education policies have been in schools. Obama and Sec. Duncan are still cleaning up the NCLB mess. Romney and Ryan clearly don't see education for all as a right. School choice is damaging to public schools, cutting off student loans will keep bright deserving students out of college~Here is a link from Education Week with some more information

It would be a sad day if education funding is cut as suggested by Romney/Ryan.

I agree, I think we need more for schools and less tax breaks for corporations. At one time in this country giving tax cuts to  corporations worked, now they are too greedy! We are all suffering because of it. (Well except the 1%)

Education is VITAL and should be the very LAST place cuts are made, not the first. Romney obviously doesn't want the American public to be educated.
