Those are a lot of good questions 'Heartlander! I am definitely in favor of candidates of conscience. I think the best perks from Donald Trump's campaign is those who identify with him are enjoying his rants against pro-establishment republicans (Like bush and cheney) and how they've failed the system and how he keep saying its rigged, its rigged!
Personally, I don't know what plans Trump and pence's plans are for education. I found some excerpts from his book, i believe, and he wants schools to compete with one another so they get better and better with quality;
"For two decades I've been urging politicians to open the schoolhouse doors and let parents decide which schools are best for their children. Professional educators look to claim that doing so would be the end of good public schools. Better charter or magnet schools would drain the top kids out of that system, or hurt the morale of those left behind. Suddenly, the excellence that comes from competition is being criticized." http://www.ontheissues.org/2016/Donald_Trump_Education.htm
What worries me is the people he would appoint to the supreme court, and other positions in power. Some people are pro lifers and plenty of issues arguements have been made that a complete pro life stance is risky for some women. http://www.lifenews.com/2016/09/23/donald-trump-releases-2nd-list-of-potential-supreme-court-judges-i-will-nominate-someone-like-scalia/

Look at James Comey doing a lackluster job being appointed by . This worries me becuz trump wants to use stop and frisk...something that some researchers say doesn't work "fairly"http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/sep/28/donald-trump/debate-donald-trump-says-stop-and-frisk-constituti/.
Not only that but his tax plans are considered to be old reaganomcs on steroids http://taxfoundation.org/comparing-2016-presidential-tax-reform-proposals. Which keeps the money with the rich and wealthy and scarce for the poor and middle class.
I don't know if my response is what your looking for but I hope we can talk more!
