Jeb Bush's policies onEducation

Allow states to give funds directly to parents and let them choose the type of education that their children need

Despite spending roughly $22 billion each year on early childhood through approximately 44 different programs, too many low-income children are unprepared for school. In order to ensure that those dollars are spent directly on children’s education rather than wasted on bureaucracy, Governor Bush would allow states to give funds directly to parents and let them choose the type of education that their children actually need (day, night, weekends, center-based, home-based, etc.), rather than the type a bureaucrat is offering. Giving families choice will ensure individual children’s educational needs are met, as well as fueling a focus on results, innovation, transparency and accountability in early childhood education.
