Voters delivered powerful messages on Election Day, not all of them consistent: They want schools to focus on education, not culture wars. Vouchers got a boost in Oklahoma but were rejected in Wisconsin. The red wave never materialized, but neither did a blue one. 

These post-election crosscurrents were the topic of a webinar sponsored by The 74 and the Progressive Policy Institute’s Reinventing America’s Schools project, featuring Andy Rotherham, a member of the Virginia State School Board and The 74’s Board of Directors; journalist and author Anya Kamenetz; Michael Hartney of the Hoover Institute; George Parker, former educator, teachers union president and adviser to the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools; and 74 Senior Writer Kevin Mahnken. The event was moderated by PPI’s Tressa Pankovits.
