Stakes Are High for K-12 Policy in 2014 Elections

State elections involving three dozen governors and more than 6,000 legislators this year could have major consequences for a variety of education policies, with the Common Core State Standards, school choice, collective bargaining, and early education among the topics most likely to get time in the spotlight and on the stump.

The GOP took control of 12 additional state legislatures and six more governorships that year.
