The two advisers to the Republican and Democratic parties debated at Teacher's College at Columbia University on October 21.
Lisa Graham Keegan, former Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction and advisor to Senator John McCain (R-AZ), and Linda Darling-Hammond, the Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education at Stanford University and advisor to Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) spoke about the future of education under the leadership of both potential presidents.
The debate's moderator, Susan Fuhrman, president of Teachers College, asks who each would want to be Secretary of Education. The two advisors do not answer the question directly but allude to two individuals.
Paul Vallas is mentioned. Vallas has since 2007 been the man in charge of New Orleans Recovery School District.
And Dr. Michael McGill is pointed out in the audience at Teacher's College, Columbia University, during the Democratic speaker's time. McGill was named Superintendent of the Year for his work in New York.
