Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval says he will follow Florida’s education reform model by pushing for laws that promote school choice and end social promotion. He made the comments during a visit with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who has become an adviser to Republican policymakers in about a dozen states implementing “the Florida formula” for education. Mr. Bush is the founder and chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education, a nonprofit organization.
