Will Higher Education Take Center Stage at Democratic National Convention?August 21, 2020 | :
by Sara Weissman
The Democratic National Convention kicked off Monday evening with an unconventional virtual opening night program, featuring former First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and other major names endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden alongside his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris.
While higher education – and particularly college affordability – was a hot topic for Democratic candidates on the debate stage in the primaries, education got little play the first night of the convention, with one reference to student loan debt by former presidential candidate Andrew Yang and a mention of the school-to-prison pipeline by Sanders.
