Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin' to sell

Rupert Murdoch giving keynote at Jeb Bush’s ed reform summit

“We were motivated to invite Mr. Murdoch after reading his eloquent speech before G8 Summit on leveraging the power of technology to improve education.” -- Jaryn Emhof, communications director for Bush's foundation

The man chosen to give the breakfast keynote address on the second day of the upcoming National Summit on Education Reform 2011: Education Everywhere , is none other than ... media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

The summit is being convened next month in San Francisco by former Florida Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education, an organization through which Bush has maintained strong influence across the country as a leader in standardized test-based school reform. Last year’s gathering was in Washington D.C. and topics for discussion were charter schools, choice, innovation and technology — favorites among modern school reformers.
