Arlington, Va. Nov. 7, 2012. AASA Executive Director, Daniel Domenech today released the following statement concerning the outcome of the presidential election:

We congratulate the President on his re-election and we look forward to continuing our work with his administration and the members of Congress to ensure that key issues that will affect our schools, like Sequestration and the reauthorization of ESEA, are resolved on a timely basis. We believe that public education may be the one area where both parties can readily find common ground and thereby model the bi-partisan problem-solving that will lead to settling many of the other critical issues affecting our country.
