Where the Presidential Candidates Stand on Educational Issues

I can't say that I really care all that much for any of the 2008 presidential candidates, but here's a very interesting website that lists where each of them stand on various issues affecting education.

If you want to know how the NEA rates a number of the candidates (IMHO the lower the approval rating, the more likely it is he/she supports true education reform), here's the breakdown:

John Kerry 100%
Evan Bayh 91%
Joe Biden 91%
Russ Feingold 91%
Dennis Kucinich 90%
John Edwards 83%
Hillary Clinton 82%
Chris Dodd 82%
Ron Paul 67%
John McCain 45%
Chuck Hagel 36%
Sam Brownback 27%
Bill Frist 27%
Duncan Hunter 17%
Tom Tancredo 8%

No rating was listed for Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Thommy Thompson, Rudy Giuliani, Bill Richardson, Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson, Al Gore, or Newt Gingrich.

John Kerry isn't running. And I don't believe Feingold is, either.
