Obama, Romney advisors debate school reform


President Obama and Mitt Romney didn’t say much about school reform in either of their recent debates, but two of their advisors did in a conversation about education at Teachers College at Columbia University.  It was Jon Schnur, executive chairman and co-founder of the non-profit America Achieves who has been an advisor to Obama, vs. Phil Handy, co-chair of Romney’s Education Policy Advisory Group and chief executive officer of Strategic Industries, a portfolio of companies in diversified service and manufacturing businesses. Among the issues on which they disagreed were the role of the federal government in education and the future of No Child Left Behind. Here’s the video of the exchange:
