Promoting Florida’s “cocktail” of education reforms at a D.C. education summit, former Gov. Jeb Bush said education should be more like milk, reports the St. Pete Times.
“You can get flavored milk — chocolate, strawberry or vanilla — that doesn’t even taste like milk,” he said. “Most of the time, there is a whole other refrigerator case dedicated to milk alternatives — like soy milk, almond milk and rice milk. They even make milk for people who can’t drink milk.”
“Who would have ever thought you could improve upon milk? Yet, freedom, innovation and competition found a way.”
Indiana and Arizona may emulate Florida policies such as grading schools’ effectiveness, reports the Times.
Update: Jeb Bush praised Obama (and Duncan) as “on the right track.”
