DFER DC Releases Voter Guide on Education Issue

A D.C.-based organization committed to creating a public education system that justly and equitably serves the city’s students has released its first-ever DC Education Champions Voter Guide, which aims to help voters understand candidates’ positions on key education policy issues ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

While Democrats for Education Reform DC does not endorse any particular candidate, the organization encourages eligible voters to pay attention to those who have a strong understanding of the building blocks of an equitable public education system that include higher education quality, teacher quality and public school choice.

“This year shows us that change must happen and it must happen now,” said DFER DC Director Ramin Taheri. “There is no greater lever with which to change the broken status quo than the exercise of our most fundamental right as Americans: our right to vote. As an organization dedicated to fighting for the students and families who are so often overlooked, we must ensure D.C. residents are well-informed and able to exercise their right to vote.”

The organization said it obtained the information compiled and summarized in the guide from the candidates’ answers to the organization’s questionnaires, official campaign websites and other publicly available sources.

The 2020 DC Education Champions Voter Guide is available at dc-edchampions.org.
