CER Announces 25th Anniversary Chair


Governor Jeb Bush to serve as Honorary Chair of CER 25th Anniversary Celebration

The Road to Innovation for ONE America

WASHINGTON, DC  May 23, 2018— In the 25 years the Center for Education Reform (CER) has been leading the fight for innovation and opportunity in education, we’ve been privy to the best hearts and minds that one could ever hope to bring together under one tent to expand educational excellence.  In celebration of its Silver Anniversary, CER announced today that Governor Jeb Bush will serve as the Honorary Chair of the 25th Anniversary Summit and Gala scheduled for October 25-26, 2018 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami, Florida.

“The Center for Education Reform’s 25 years of bold leadership and relentless advocacy for freedom, innovation and quality in education have changed the lives of millions of students across the nation. This milestone is an opportunity for education reformers to come together to celebrate the many successes in our mission to transform education and reflect on how we can achieve even better results for future generations of Americans,” said Jeb Bush. “It is my honor to serve as Honorary Chair and I urge other leaders to join us for this special event.”


“We are thrilled that Gov. Bush will be spearheading our events, particularly given the impact of his work in Florida and across the nation,” said CER’s Founder and CEO Jeanne Allen.

“CER’s Silver Summit and Gala is in Miami not only because the area is host to some of the most innovative efforts in education but because it is the gateway to Latin America. In the coming days and weeks we will be formally announcing our partners, our honorees, and our innovators who work to transform education for learners at all levels, K through Career.”
