Education and disability issues have received nominal coverage during this year’s Presidential Election, and with final voting taking place in just two months, there is still much to learn about the four leading 2016 presidential candidates. That’s why the Council for Exceptional Children encourages voters to access the individual campaign websites for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Jill Stein and Gary Johnson for information about what the candidates and their respective party platforms have to say about issues such as special and gifted education, school spending, early-childhood education and testing, among others. Voters may also access an overview of each nominee’s positions here. And be sure to ask your candidates, at the national, state, and local level, where they stand on education of children with exceptionalities.
