Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren Wants a Secretary of Education with Public School Experience

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president, made a campaign stop in Philadelphia today, where she met with students and teachers at an event hosted by the American Federation of Teachers. At the event and in a Tweet posted beforehand, Warren said that if elected president, she would appoint a secretary of education who has previous experience working in public education. Julia Terruso of Philly.com writes: "Warren, who worked as a special education teacher in New Jersey earlier in her career, has stumped on the need for more federal funding of public schools, universal child care and pay requirements for early-childhood education teachers. She has also unveiled a plan for student-debt forgiveness and making two and four-year public college tuition free."
