Swing State 2008: The Future of Education Barack Obama wants to double charter school funding and dramatically change how teachers are paid. John McCain's education mantra is all about more choice, which is to say, he supports expanding voucher programs and online education opportunities, among other reforms. In conjunction with the Monday evening broadcast of Where We Stand: America’s Schools in the 21st Century (WVIZ/PBS, 10 p.m.), we'll examine the positions of both presidential candidates and ask, which policies would be better for Ohio schools? Join the conversation Monday morning at 9 a.m.
