Presidential campaigns are in full swing. Every candidate wants your vote.
The Oklahoman runs an “On the Campaign Trail” box every day to tell you what the candidates are up to. But if you want to know more about their positions and ideas on education — from big ideas to small comments — there’s a good place for you to find out more.
The Education Writers Association maintains a Web site that chronicles the candidates’ musings on education, which voters consistently rank as a top concern.
The blog entries are short and simple.
