What are the candidates saying about education? Join the discussion May 26 to find out!

Memo from the ISTE Advocacy Network:

You’re invited to participate in a one-of-a-kind, ISTE-sponsored Presidential Forum hosted by the Committee for Education Funding (CEF) Thursday, May 26 from 9 a.m.– noon. The event will feature high-level policy representatives from the presidential campaigns who will discuss the candidates’ education policy platforms and agendas. The event is a unique opportunity to hear an in-depth analysis of each candidate’s education priorities.

Award-winning journalist Candy Crowley will moderate the event and give the audience a chance to ask questions about the need to invest in education and what education policy will look like with a new administration.

The ISTE community can watch the broadcast live from the Newseum in Washington, D.C.! In addition to watching the livestream, you can participate in the event by submitting your questions for the speakers at or tweeting your question using #CEFpresForum.

Please consider submitting or tweeting questions related to key ISTE advocacy initiatives such as digital equity, ed tech funding, digital citizenship and digital age classrooms.

We hope you can join the critical conversation and find out about each of the candidate’s education policy platforms in the 2016 race for the White House!
