Jeb Bush’s Common Core Website Goes Silent


For two months, nothing.

No more TV spots. No more teacher Tweets. No more press releases.

What happened?

Scathing Purple Musings wrote in March about the Common Core initiative from Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Florida’s future. Learn More. Go Further was designed to end all debate and educate the public on Common Core’s benefits and superiority.

So why did they pull the plug?

There are two possible reasons. Neither of them good for Bush or Common Core, the latter of which is being sounded defeated at every juncture. Bush has few political allies on Common Core left and its main private sector supporter, the Chamber of Commerce, has slowly been losing the benevolent status they once enjoyed from traditional conservative voters for its advocacy on Common Core and immigration reform.

Respected conservative columnist George Will said earlier this year on FOX News that a supporter of Common Core couldn’t win the republican nomination. This is even more true now. Make no mistake. Jeb Bush wants to be president. The recent two months of inactivity from his website may be a signal he’s thrown Common Core under the bus for political expediency.

About Bob Sikes

A long time ago and a planet far, far away I was an athletic trainer for the New York Mets. I was blessed to be part of the now legendary 1986 World Series Championship. My late father told me that I'd one day be thankful I had that degree in teaching from Florida State University. He was right and I became twice blesses to become a teacher in the late 1990's. After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.

  2. Reblogged this on Exceptional Delaware and commented:
    Common Core has become very toxic. And now it’s becoming toxic for politicians! President Obama has nothing to lose by having his boy Duncan praising at as the best thing since sliced bread. Unless it makes such an impact by election time that the balance of power begins to rapidly shift…

    Well, he threw the “little brown ones” under the bus. Now, he’s thrown his precious under the bus. He has officially announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, sans press conference.
