School Learning

Candidates Talk Education

Obama pointed out a number of things he and Romney share in common Wednesday night, and education was no exception. “Governor Romney, I genuinely believe, cares about education,” he said. Romney validated the president’s hunch, saying “I love great schools,” and boasting that Massachusetts has top education system in the country. President Obama attacked the lack of specifics to any of Romney’s plans, education or otherwise. “When Gov. Romney says that he’ll replace [a policy] with something but can’t detail [what] … [is he] keeping all these plans secret because they’re too good? Is it because somehow middle-class families are gonna benefit too much from them?” Obama asked. Romney shot back at accusations: “Mr. President, you’re entitled to your own airplane and house, but not your own facts.”
