How elections affect education policy

Education policy becomes an election year policy, and fades to the background once elections are over. Americans think of education as something that is controlled locally.  That isn’t how most countries do it.  Most countries control, and fund, education from the top down.  Because of this, education is funded more evenly across the territory.  What that funding does is give those governments control over what is taught.  In the United States, education is mostly funded locally–with local control over what is taught.

Which is better or worse?  These are the sorts of questions being asked during an election, then dropped.  I am curious what will come of this.
