Candidates for Governor talk education

Posted: Updated:

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - The four announced candidates for Arkansas governor say they want to see an end to the Pulaski County school desegregation lawsuit and that they support school choice.

 Republicans Curtis Coleman, Debra Hobbs and Asa Hutchinson joined Democrat Mike Ross at an education forum Tuesday in Hot Springs.

 Taking questions from school administrators, the candidates largely agreed on support for trade schools, home schooling and giving students skills that make them employable.

 Hobbs broke ranks with the other three to say she's open to providing vouchers for private schools.
