Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Selling Florida's brand of education reform: Jeb on FOX



Love him or hate him, you know you can't stop talking about former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his continuing influence over education policy in the Sunshine State and, increasingly, across the country.

Tonight, you can catch Bush making the pitch for school grades, accountability testing and all the other initiatives he's pushed forward during an appearance at 9 p.m. on the Sean Hannity show.

The special program also will feature Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, who has pushed Florida-style education programs into his state, as well as two Florida students who "share personal stories of how Florida's education reforms improved their quality of education and equipped them for success" (according to Bush's foundation).

Bush continues to dominate the Republican conversation about education even as some academics have suggested that he's overselling the goods. This drives many of his critics nuts. But then, he is appearing on FOX. You know you're going to watch.
