The 43rd governor of Florida and the president and chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, Jeb Bush, joins Education Next Editor-in-chief Marty West for the 200th episode of the EdNext Podcast. Governor Bush discusses his experience managing crises, as well as some of the best practices to continue education during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“This is the time for innovation to rise up,” Bush says, “an opportunity to also invest in the things we want more of rather than just invest in whatever was existing in the past.”

Gov. Bush recently wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post, “It’s time to embrace distance learning — and not just because of the coronavirus.”

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher and here every Wednesday.
