Three days after the election, the Education Writers Association will help reporters make sense of it all and identify key story lines during a live webcast event at the National Press Club. Speakers will include Washington insiders, education and political analysts, and veteran journalists.

We will explore what the election is likely to mean for key issues, including funding for public schools and universities, teacher pay, school choice, and accountability. Also, how might shifts in Congress affect President Trump’s education agenda and the priorities being pursued by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos?
