Obama, Jeb Bush to Visit Miami High School

Tuesday, 01 Mar 2011 02:23 PM

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will appear with President Barack Obama at a Miami high school this week.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan will also be at Friday's event at Miami Central High School. The president will talk about improving consistently low performing schools.

The school is using the turnaround model for improvement, which involves replacing its principal and at least half its staff.

Bush, a Republican, doesn't have much in common politically with the Democratic president but has supported his education policy.

Part of Bush's legacy was an education overhaul, including rewarding and punishing schools based on standardized tests.

Obama will later headline fundraisers for Sen. Bill Nelson and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
