Democrats don't like U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. But a few Democratic candidates for president are putting an interesting twist on their attacks.

Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer released an education plan Thursday that calls for tripling federal funding for high-poverty schools, providing universal preschool, and using federal incentives to raise teacher pay.

The phrase "government schools" dates back decades to the earliest origins of the school choice movement. Here's why Trump may have used used it in his State of the Union address.

President Donald Trump is about to release his latest proposal for spending at the U.S. Department of Education.

More than half of the nation's states now have published school-level spending data, leading to ripe debates about K-12 spending patterns and student equity.

In his State of the Union Address, President Donald Trump urged passage of a $5 billion federal program that would provide tax-credits to cover the cost of private school scholarships.

Teacher pay raises, how districts spend their money, and whether states should save or spend will be high on many state legislators' agendas this year.

Trump reportedly will make a pitch for his administration's "Education Freedom Scholarships" proposal in his 2020 State of the Union speech.

We put our ears to the ground to learn who might be possible candidates to succeed Betsy DeVos as education secretary after the 2020 election, whether President Donald Trump is re-elected or a Democrat replaces him.

The approach Sen. Lamar Alexander took to President Donald Trump's impeachment trial might be rooted in the same philosophy he applied to a key element of the Every Student Succeeds Act.
