It’s been quite a dramatic election season, with the two main presidential candidates debating on a number of topics; however, due to the theatrical nature of this election, education has, unfortunately, taken a backseat.

That why eCampus News has put together an informal, quick-hitting resource on the two main presidential nominees’ positions on some of the most pressing higher education issues today. Be sure to check out Page 2 for the results of our reader poll.

[Editor’s note: Under the two images below, we included a link to the PDF version for downloading and easier reading. For coverage on each main candidate’s position on K-12 issues, click here.]
