Jeb Bush Endorses Common Core Education Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Mar 19, 2014, 10:04 PM

Former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida, a Republican, is touting Common Core as the solution to upgrade American educational standards.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Wednesday urged state officials to follow through on Common Core education standards despite what he called an "avalanche" of criticism from those who oppose them. Bush said at an education forum with Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., that the standards are key to improving educational achievement around the country."

Jeb alleges that conservative critics of Common Core are "myth" makers.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "Bush ascribed the opposition to Common Core to what he called "myths" about the standards being part of a federal takeover of local classrooms. Common Core standards spell out what math and reading skills students should have in each grade. They are designed to make students think and reason more than they do with traditional classroom work."

Jeb is planning to run for the GOP nomination for President in 2016 and seeks to gather the support of the liberal wing of the Republican Party.
