Three Democratic candidates for president have introduced sweeping education plans that aim to make college more affordable and improve K-12 schools: Hillary Clinton would use $250 million in grants to boost graduation rates, particularly for low-income and minority students; Bill Richardson would provide universal pre-kindergarten programs, eliminate NCLB and make public college free; and John Edwards would also introduce free preschool and give teachers in poor, rural South Carolina schools a raise of up to $15,000.
