Bush: Good results will diminish opposition

As members of Idaho's school technology task force get the chance to question former governors Jeb Bush and Bob Wise, the first question was from state Sen. Melinda Smyser, R-Parma, a school board member, who asked “what one thing made the difference in making it successful, your whole revamping of education.” Bush responded: Results. “We have rising student achievement as measured by independent means,” he said. “That's exactly what I think you'll see with these sweeping reforms that you all passed. Implemented right, you're going to see rising student achievement. It takes away a lot of the opposition.” He added, “You can measure whether they're successful or not by the actual results.”
