Jeb Bush gets recognition for education reform efforts



Jeb Bush's educational reform work has earned him one of the four prizes awarded this year by the conservative Bradley Foundation. The jebbush.jpgprize, to be awarded May 11 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, comes with a $250,000 "stipend."

“Governor Bush has been at the forefront of education reform,” said Michael W. Grebe, head of the Bradley Foundation. “During his administration and since, Florida students have made incredible gains.  He has also been a vocal advocate for school choice.”

Bush was picked from more than 200 nominations by a team that included Pierre S. du Pont, Martin Feldstein, Robert P. George, Charles Krauthammer,  Dianne J. Sehler, George F. Will, among others. Other winners are Richard Epstein, Harvey Mansfield and Allan Meltzer.
