Will the Real Education President Please Come Forward?

Seeing stories claiming Obama is going to win the presidency reminds me of a saying I coined recently to describe people who try to tell a story that has not happened yet.

It's like sending smoke signals before dawn. Lots of smoke, but not a light on to let anyone know the truth. We need more stories telling us the what-ifs, so that the electorate -- investors, school operators, analysts all -- can make our own decisions on November 4.

What if either of the two presidential candidates wins? What will they do with education?

For all the talk in the press about the future of the economy under Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential hopeful, and Sen. John McCain, his Republican challenger, we see hardly any solid stories on the future of education.

Where is the discussion in the mainstream press? What will these candidates do for the education industry.

We would like to have your ideas on what you think will happen? You don't have to tell us who you are voting for, but tell us, who has the better education package?

When we meet March 9-11, 2009 at the 11th Annual Education Industry Investment Forum, there will be some highly charged discussions about what just happened in November, and what it means for the industry.

Join those discussions now. Send your smoke signals. We're turning on the light for you.
