- Hillary Clinton took a swipe Saturday at charter schools, saying most "don't take the hardest-to-teach kids, or, if they do, they don't keep them. And so the public schools are often in a no-win situation, because they do, thankfully, take everybody, and then they don't get the resources or the help and support that they need to be able to take care of every child's education." Clinton said she's been a supporter of charter schools for about 30 years, but "not as a substitute for the public schools, but as a supplement for the public schools." Clinton spoke during a townhall at Claflin University in Orangeburg, South Carolina.

- Gov. Jeb Bush will join his ex-2016 opponent Gov. Scott Walker in Waukesha, Wisc. this afternoon for a visit with charter and private school students and their families participating in the state's school choice program. Hispanics for School Choice and La Casa de Esperanza are hosting the event, which aims to highlight education reforms. The event is a lead-up to Tuesday night's debate in Milwaukee hosted by the Fox Business Network.
