LANSING, MI- Lansing Community College students, faculty and administrators feel left in the dark during the presidential debates with regards to education policy. With two of three presidential debates completed, the LCC community thinks candidates should focus more on education policy. “I would like to hear them talk about education in community colleges, and how that will help with economic recovery,” said Todd Heywood, candidate running for an LCC Board of Trustee position. Matt Bedard, president of the LCC Republican Club said education is the bedrock of our nations future, and the current system is in need of dire reform. “Education seems to be the one thing that everyone can agree on, at least partially,” Bedard said.
