In my class I had to choose a major national issue and identify the forces in a political party that help drive the party to its position on the issue. I chose education and the Democratic party. The driving forces part is where I am stumped. I figured the forces would be unions, teacher groups, other groups, and government but don't think these would be correct as listing as forces. My question is would this be considered the forces?
In addition to teachers' unions, parents also are usually strong supporters of schools. Traditionally, Democrats have favored higher taxes and more services for people. Many people also realize that without a strong public education system, a lot of students won't have the employment skills necessary to compete for jobs.
