What GOP candidates said about education in Tuesday night speeches

Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul each addressed supportive crowds Tuesday night as the results of Republican presidential nomination contests in 10 Super Tuesday states came rolling in.

Topics in their speeches included their deep appreciation to supporters, their deep disdain for President Obama’s policies, the economy, jobs, American values, America’s promise, liberty, and big ideas (Gingrich owned this phrase).

So what did they say about education and school reform?

A whole lot of nothing.
