Jeb Bush, brother of former President George W. Bush, is hitting the campaign trail to praise the "government-run, unionized and politicized monopolies" agenda, which is now commonly referred to as Common Core.
According to NewsMax, "Responding to a national backlash over Common Core education standards, potential 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Thursday that the set of state benchmarks should be "the new minimum" for America's classrooms."
Jeb Bush is quoted as saying that, "What is endangered here is not just public education, but the core idea that defines America. Education reform is about renewing this country. It is about protecting and promoting the right to rise."
As reported by NewsMax, "The speech also offered a preview of what a presidential stump speech might look like, with Bush's education record at its core. Ticking off statistics, he painted a picture of children trapped in failing schools overseen by "government-run, unionized and politicized monopolies."
Microsoft founder Bill Gates, a major Democrat Party donor, is spearheading the Common Core education agenda.
