A Note from Our President and Chairman, Jeb Bush
Across our nation’s diverse and dynamic states, one thing unites us all: A concern about the quality of education in America.
We know a quality education can change a life; it can provide each and every student with the knowledge and skills to achieve his or her dreams. The success of today’s students will determine the destiny of our nation.
Even with so much at stake, too many states and schools subscribe to education myths that lull leaders, educators and communities into believing a child’s zip code, race or parents’ salary defines their ability to learn. Thankfully, those faulty expectations are beginning to change.
One by one, states are taking a stand for their futures by launching bold, student-centered reforms to transform education for all children. This movement to demand high-quality learning for each and every student is founded on educational opportunity, high expectations and transparent accountability. These states are challenging the status quo to ensure students have the skills, teachers and educational choices they will need to succeed.
The results of reform continue to demonstrate a simple truth – all students can thrive when education is organized around the singular goal of learning.
