In conjunction with National School Choice Week, activists are pushing for a policy reform on the state’s education system.

Laurie Lee is the Executive Director of the Arkansas Reform Alliance said Arkansas can learn from Florida’s education system which Jeb Bush implemented.

“The best way to set policy in any state is to look what others have done good and bad. Take the good and leave the bad and learn from other people’s experience. It’s important to set our egos aside,” said Lee.

Jeb Bush was the 43rd Governor of Florida, who served from 1999 to 2007.

Teachers, administrators, business leaders, and policy makers are expected to attend as well.  The rally is being held Tuesday at 9:15 am in the Rotunda of the state Capitol.  The summitt is at the Capital Hotel in Little Rock.
