Jeb Bush and Obama appearing together to support "No Child Left Behind"...
Yes, believe it!
MIAMI – When President Barack Obama and former Florida Gov. JebBush stand side by side at a Miami high school, it will be an opportunity for the Democrat to show a bipartisan approach to education reform while allowing the Republican to push his own nationwide message on the issue.
Obama and Bush have common ground on education. Both support increasing the number of charter schools, tying teacher evaluations to student performance on standardized tests and setting high standards and accountability. They also believe education is key to invigorating U.S. competitiveness.
The joint appearance comes as Obama aims to rewrite the No Child Left Behind Act — signed into law by the governor’s brother, former President George W. Bush, no less.
