The Foundation for Excellence in Education is an education advocacy group founded by Jeb Bush in 2008 that provides model legislation, rule-making expertise, implementation strategies, and public outreach. This 501(c)(3) organization maintains an office in Tallahassee, Florida.[1][2]

The mission statement of the foundation is:

To build an American education system that equips every child to achieve his or her God-given potential.

The 21st century economy is the most competitive in world history. It is an economy that requires a growing number of educated and skilled workers. Yet, on international assessments, American students rank 21st in science and 24th in math among 30 industrialized nations. We need to reverse this trend if America is to continue its dominant role. We believe our states’ leaders, educators, parents and students are ready and able to achieve that goal.

State Initiatives provides customized, strategic support to state decision makers. The program was launched in 2009 in response to requests for assistance from lawmakers and policymakers who were interested in advancing reforms that are part of the Florida Formula for Student Achievement or are innovative ways to improve the quality of education. See how Florida ranks in the Top 10 for student learning and achievement.
