Our take: President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney have opposing views on education. What impact will the presidential nominees have on the topic? J. Daniel Young, from The Spectator explains the ideas each nominee is proposing:

"We are about to laugh ourselves out of an education. We are so busy laughing at the latest thing that Biden says, or pointing a finger at the latest way that Romney is alienating his supporters that we've stopped focusing on the issues.

When you go to the poll in November, we are collectively about to determine the direction of education for current students and future children’s education.

Stop laughing at the gaffs and sound bites and start thinking about education, specifically, yours.
