Campaign 2016: Bush Gets Demerits From PolitiFact For Dropout Claims
Education types are all excited about the increasing possibility that Jeb Bush will run for President (though Vox's sober take on the role his education positions will take seems most accurate).
Meantime, Politifact notes some issues with recent comments Bush has made about schools (Jeb Bush on the Truth-O-Meter). Bush's October fundraising letter contains some information about kids dropping out that Politifact deems mostly false. "There is more than one way to measure dropout frequency, but whichever one you use, Bush’s number was off."
Not everyone's so sure that PolitiFact has it right, however. Among them are Sherman Dorn, no particular fan of Bush's, who says on Facebook that Bush is closer to the right number than it may seem.
According to Politifact, Bush did somewhat better comparing US achievement to other countries.
