How Presidential Candidates, Trump And Clinton Are Really Treating Education In Their Academic Platforms? [VIDEO]By Michael Lagura, UniversityHerald Reporter
As if the polls are not riveting enough, presidential candidates Trump and Clinton pave the way for a tight political suspense with their warring academic platforms. Now, academics get through the details with a looking glass to restate exactly how the two charismatic political candidates are treating education in the actual sense.
The democratic views on education by presidential candidate Clinton differs much greatly from the republican views of candidate Trump. That is a sure thing. Clinton's deeply-rooted passion for early education has long been her asset.
Trump's honest intentions, on the other hand, are what he considers his best move. In fact, he stands strong with his convictions by indicting red flags caused by Democrats to the supposedly equal education rights. He furthered by stating that the best way to give the best education to the children of America is to get rid of the government-run education monopoly, the Rundown reported.
As solid atonement for wrongs done by the Democrats, Trump prides himself of the $20 billion deal he'll be offering to school expansion projects during his first year in office. But interestingly, this still fails to cover the blatant lack of foundation in his academic platform.
Looking closely into Clinton's plans, many experts admitted to have been swayed by the plan at certain points. Firstly, her roster of education plans begins with granting students with family incomes less than $85,000 per year free-tuition offers. Clinton suavely predicts that by 2012, this shall have expanded to include families under the less-than $120,000 annual bracket.
However, heroic-sounding as it may be, experts couldn't brush away the greater risks it poses to the paying students in the future. Now, that is a sure catch. Clinton, by all means, remains suave with the education plans.
At most, the warring parties' treatment on education differs wildly on the loaning system, MarquetteWire reported.
Whatever the case is, it is highly essential for the electorates to find the meridian from these extremely opposing zones, Philly reported.
As Timothy Maga, a political science instructor and former U.S. House of Representatives legislative director would say it, "there are a number of our democratic allies overseas who maintain stronger legislative commitments to higher education access than the United States... although it is often politically incorrect in the United States to suggest that other societies 'do it better,' there are interesting precedents worth studying", MarquetteWire quoted.
