Former governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush sits down to discuss America’s rapidly changing economy and workforce, why the ability of our schools to adapt and prepare a new generation of graduates will become a national priority, and why many of the education reforms he implemented in Florida were not the easiest political route but remain a high point of his Florida legacy.
