Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

The latest stop on the Jeb education tour: Pennsylvania

In the past year, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been criss-crossing the country - to Arizona, Indiana, Tennessee, Georgia, Washington D.C. - pushing his vision of education reform. This week he stopped in Pennsylvania, where he appeared with a Republican gubernatorial candidate who wants to adopt an A-to-F school grading system like Florida's and better link teacher evaluations to test scores.

Teacher accountability is more and more a bipartisan issue, Jeb said, according to the York Dispatch: "There's a new ally in this, and his name is President Obama."
