Trump Campaign Couldn’t Find Anyone For D.C. Education Event

“I have to address the elephant that’s not in the room.”

It was slightly awkward Tuesday when Caroline Hendrie, executive director of the Education Writers Association, opened a panel on education and the 2016 presidential election.

The Donald Trump campaign wasn’t able to find anyone to participate.

“We worked aggressively in the past months to recruit someone — a policymaker, an education analyst, an advocate,” Hendrie said. “We tried every channel that we could think of, and that included, of course, the Trump campaign itself and the Republican National Committee.”
