All it took was one round of debates for the 2020 presidential campaign to eclipse 2016 in regards to education policy. 

Not that that’s saying much. 

Last month’s Democratic showdown touched (briefly) on such key K-12 issues as school spending, integration, safety and social-emotional learning. There were also the timely higher ed issues of college affordability, student debt and free tuition. 

Now with the next two-night debate-a-thon set to begin July 30 in Detroit, The 74 wants to hear from you: What other education issues deserve a moment in the campaign spotlight? Which issue deserves a deeper and more informed discussion? What do you care most about, when it comes to America’s education system?

We hope you’ll vote in the poll below, or write in your own top topic, and then circulate with other people in your community. (Here’s a Facebook post and tweet that you can share.) We’ll be back to share some of the top results ahead of the Detroit debates.
