Now that the three presidential debates have finally wrapped up, we can focus our attention on education issues surrounding the 2012 election.

In case you missed last week’s education debate, Taking the Election to School: Making Education a Focus of the 2012 Election, Education Week is now offering the video of the debate online. Last week’s debate, hosted by the Teachers College Columbia University and Education Week, featured John Schnur and Phil Handy, education advisers to President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, respectively. Susan Fuhrman, President of Teachers College, moderated the debate.

Education Week also posted the post-debate analysis discussion, moderated by Mark Bomster of Education Week. Analysts Jeffrey Henig, professor at Teachers College, Education Week writer Alyson Klein, and editor of The Hechinger Report Liz Willen discuss the debate in the video below.
