Education reform in America is encouraging, but it is moving too slowly, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said in Nashville on Thursday.
Bush was the keynote speaker at the morning session on the ExcelinEd summit in Nashville. ExcelinEd supports improving education both in traditional public schools and outside them and supports school choice. Bush serves as the group's chairman and president.
Bush talked about the intersection of education and politics and offered some critiques that education reform tends to fall out of the national dialogue in non-election years.
