Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Obama: Jeb is a "champion of education reform"



From President Obama's remarks to students today at Miami Central High School:

We are also honored to be joined here today by another champion of education reform, somebody who championed reform when he was in office, somebody who is now championing reform as a private citizen -- Jeb Bush.  (Applause.)  And we are grateful -- we're grateful for him being here.  Aside from being a former governor of this great state, Jeb of course is best known as the brother of Marvin Bush.  (Laughter.)  Apparently the rest of the family also did some work back in Washington back in the day.  (Laughter.) The truth is I've gotten to know Jeb because his family exemplifies public service.  And we are so grateful to him for the work that he’s doing on behalf of education.  So, thank you, Jeb.  (Applause.)     .
