CEF Presidential Forum

The Committee for Education Funding (CEF), which AFSA is a coalition member of, hosted a Presidential Forum on May 26, 2016 at the Newseum in Washington, DC. The event was moderated by Candy Crowley, award-winning journalist and former Chief Political Correspondent for CNN. It was 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 first panel consisted of campaign surrogates:

Clinton Campaign
Ann O’Leary, Senior Policy Advisor

Sanders Campaign
Donni Turner, Policy Analyst

The second panel consisted of think tank representatives:

Lindsey BurkeWill Skillman Fellow in Education, Institute for Family, Community, and Opportunity, The Heritage Foundation

Nat Malkus, Fellow in Education Policy Studies, American Enterprise Institute

Carmel Martin, Executive VP for Policy, Center for American Progress
