Governor Jeb Bush is a politician and businessman who served as the 43rd governor of Florida. He was most recently a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Governor Bush maintains his passion for improving the quality of education for students across the country by serving as the Chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, a national nonprofit education reform organization he founded to transform education in America.

Governor Jeb Bush will give the 11th annual Eugene J. McCarthy Lecture on Conscience and Courage in Public Life on September 21, 2017.
