Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush keynotes ACE Scholarships luncheon in Denver   Leave a comment

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told an audience of 1,700 Denver business and civic leaders on Tuesday that a failing educational system puts the United States at risk of becoming a nation in decline.

Speaking at the spring luncheon of at the Hyatt Convention Center, Bush said the path to fixing the systems is more parental engagement, higher educational standards, better accountability, customized learning, reform of the teaching profession and empowering people with school choice.

“In schooling, the most important thing we ought to be doing is providing choice,” he said.

There is a deepening crisis in the United States.   Leave a comment

Half of African-American and Hispanic children drop out of high school. Of those who graduate, many read at a middle school level, and few are ready for college. Our poor, inner-city children are not receiving the education they need to become successful contributors to society.

Without a diploma these children are as likely to go to prison, as they are to go to college. The promise of the American Dream – “a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement,” according to James Truslow Adams – is just that for these children: a dream.
We can fix this crisis. But first, we must truly understand the extent of the problem.

What Sparked the School Choice Resurgence of 2011?

Surprise! 2011 has been a monumental year for education reform. This year alone, 36 states have either passed or are considering comprehensive legislation on school vouchers, tax credits, and other education reform measures. Of these, 12 states and the District of Columbia have implemented reforms to expand or create school choice programs. What accounts for this sheer volume of school-funding reform activity? And what role did philanthropy play? While some have said the reforms were a byproduct of the 2010 elections, others have pointed to the dramatic shift in strategy away from white papers and editorials and towards public awareness-building and sophisticated political advocacy. At this session, speakers from three states that exemplify the resurgence—Colorado, Arizona, and Indiana—will explain how they turned things around. What are the lessons for donors who want to advance school choice reforms in their states? Where did reforms fail, and what can we learn from these failures? As the school choice movement moves forward, how can it maintain momentum and guard its victories as it evolves and matures?
