Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, speaking this morning to Idaho's Students Come First Technology Task Force, said he thinks Idaho's laws moving toward requiring online courses and funding them are “one of a kind,” and said he thinks it “will be the models for the rest of the country.”
Bush and former West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise are addressing the council this morning; the two head the Digital Learning Council, which promotes high-quality digital learning. “You may know this: I'm a Republican,” he said. “You may know this: Gov. Wise is a Democrat.” Bush said, “We share a common bond that we believe education needs to be a national priority, where 50 states and lots of different communities trying different things … create a much better outcome.”
