The Committee for Education Funding (CEF) hosted a Presidential Forum on education issues facing the presidential candidates this fall. The event was moderated by Candy Crowley, award-winning journalist and former Chief Political Correspondent for CNN. The CEF Presidential Forum was designed to be an opportunity for Presidential Candidates and their campaigns to highlight and discuss their education policy agendas––including but not limited to education funding matters. The overarching goal of this event was to emphasize education as a critical domestic policy.
