Ahead of the 2016 presidential election, a lot of candidates are rolling out their plans for the voters, the nation and their party supporters. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, in an apparent homage to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has released his education policy, calling it “the civil rights issue of our time.” The former Florida governor intends to reform the financing system by modifying current college savings accounts and allowing families and individuals, beginning with early education, to save tax-free for education. He would also streamline the money being spent on students, by allowing states to give funds directly to parents.
What the Jeb Bush policy means
Jeb Bush on Monday outlined an education reform plan that would take much decision-making away from the federal government and give it to state and local school authorities. During his two terms as Florida governor, Bush focused on education and later as head of an education foundation, presented what was the latest in a series of detailed policy plans on major issues. “As the nation honors Dr. Martin Luther King and his legacy today, I firmly believe that ensuring every individual has access to a quality education is the great civil rights challenge of our time,” he said. The United States on Monday marked a holiday for the slain U.S. civil rights leader.
Jeb Bush believes only him can defeat Trump
Jeb Bush recently told the media that he is in a better position to take on the billionaire GOP front runner, Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz in the elections, than any other candidate. Jeb believes he will win the Republican ticket by beating the other candidates. “Marco’s a friend but Americans are looking for a leader,” Bush said in an exclusive email interview after the most recent debate in Charleston, South Carolina, when asked why he’s better suited than Rubio to take on the two rabble-rousing conservatives Trump and Cruz running away with the election right now. “I was the governor of Florida for eight years. When you’re governor, you have to make tough decisions and solve problems. You can’t just file an amendment and call it success,” he said.
