In the past 15 years, school reform has grown from a small, conservative movement to a bi-partisan, national priority.

Many organizations now play a key role in furthering reform. Some promote individual policies, such as school choice. Others create a demand for change through public awareness.

Founded by former Governor Jeb Bush in 2008, the Foundation for Excellence in Education’s (ExcelinEd) unique contribution is working with decision makers on developing and implementing reform policies. We are a hands-on, how-to organization that provides model legislation, rule-making expertise, implementation strategies, and public outreach. Our staff has years of experience working with state and local governments, legislative bodies, in the classroom, and with the media.

This website supports our mission. We are building a one-stop shop for those working to reform education. It includes a depository of policies from all 50 states, model legislation, research papers, academic data, and media reports. This site will be a constant work in progress as we continually update our content with the latest in education reform.
