This Week on IVN: Education and more Website Development

 This Week on IVN: Education

Back-to-school time is approaching and IVN.us is getting ahead of the curve. This week’s theme: Education!

We’ll be looking at issues like voter education, social media in the classroom, head start programs, vouchers, and student debt this week.

What are candidates proposing? How can we find independent, non-partisan solutions to the many problems arising from our education system?

Interested in contributing? The mission of IVN.us is to raise the level of civil discourse to a place where solutions are more persuasive than talking points, and participation is not conditioned on your party affiliation. If you’ve got something to add to the debate, apply to be a contributor today!
