Bush Responds to Common Core Question


In Tallahassee, Fla., on February 10, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush gave a policy speech on education in which he reportedly omitted Common Core. When asked later by a reporter if he was trying to reframe the debate and take the emphasis off Common Core, he responded “No, I’ll talk about it. What do you want to know about it?” He later said:

I’m for higher standards. And I’m for creating real restrictions of the federal government’s role in this…So you can alleviate people’s fears that you’re going to have some kind of control by the federal government of content or curriculum or even standards…I’m against the federal government being involved in demanding that assessments be done in a certain way.
