This is a story on the Educational Foundation Jeb Bush is most interested in. Reform yes. But at the expense of Public Education? Does it have to be a face-off? Can public education learn from and share with charter schools (as they should)? In North Carolina…for instance….most conservatives don’t believe this…and we at TFN are working towards the day when they do…We don’t know enough yet about “The Foundation For Excellence in Education“…but in their own writing…here’s an opening into learning about them..and the Educational Philosophy of Jeb Bush…who has made Education a priority his entire adult life….we cannot tell yet if that is a completely positive thing. But we’ll know soon. And no matter what ….I think it has to be something that non-conservatives are willing to negotiate with and discuss…Liberals, Moderates, and Conservatives will forge the way to the best Education in The US, and around The World.
The Foundation For Excellence in Education
The 21st century economy is the most competitive in world history. It is an economy that requires a growing number of educated and skilled workers. Yet, on international assessments, American students rank 21st in science and 26th in math, behind their peers in countries like Singapore, Japan and Canada. We need to reverse this trend if America is to continue its dominant role. We believe our states’ leaders, educators, parents and students are ready and able to achieve that goal.
State Initiatives provides customized, strategic support to state decision makers. The program was launched in 2009 in response to requests for assistance from lawmakers and policymakers who were interested in advancing reforms that are part of theFlorida Formula for Student Achievement or are innovative ways to improve the quality of education. See how Florida ranks in the Top 10 for student learning and achievement.
