IRVING, TEXAS--Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were in Dallas on Monday for the inaugural Globalization of Higher Education Conference.
Bush and Clinton spoke separately at the private event co-organized by Bush. According to the Associated Press (AP), the event offered a bipartisan twist for the nation's two dominant political families. Both spoke on education policy and the need to make higher education affordable and accessible across the globe. Both also were reported as chatting briefly off stage.
According to AP, Bush said in his speech, "Higher education in America has a growing affordability problem while billions in the developing world struggle with accessibility. Exporting U.S. post-secondary education and global consumers at scale can help really resolve both issues simultaneously." He also said, "Expanding access through technology can bring down the cost of delivery at home and abroad."
AP also reported that Clinton said, "When people around the world have access to this kind of American model of education it illustrates ... that we believe in spreading opportunity to more people, in more places, so that they too have the chance to live up to their own God-given potential." She added, "she's worried that we're closing the doors to higher education in our own country so this great model that we've had that has meant so much to so many is becoming further and further away from too many."
The AP reported that Clinton thanked Bush at start of her speech, citing his focus on education and his "passion and dedication to the issue in the private sector."

Uh...why? Don't all those people in all those countries already HAVE governments whose job it is to protect their interests?? Who died and left these two nitwits in charge?
“Globalization of Higher Education Conference.”
That’s actually what it’s called? Not just an Infowars nickname for it? I dislkike this Jeb character more and more each day. Hillary couldn’t sink any lower of course.
Is there a picture of the two of them sitting on a couch?
The Bush folks and the Clintons are arm in arm. We need to send these two to to the trash heap.
“nation’s two dominant political families”
Enough to make any patriot shudder with fear and disgust...
At least it would be honest, probably the last honest thing they’d do
This is the sort of stuff that makes me wonder about that old talk of the skull and bones society.
Two oligarchs are would never trust or vote for.
"Not so fast, sucka!"
“Both spoke on education policy and the need to make higher education affordable and accessible across the globe.”
To hell with both of these Citizens of the World.
Leave it to two nimrods from a nation whose own eduction scores are abysmal, to figure out how to bring that same quality of education to the rest of the world.
I marvel at the level of ignorance of those who wish to lead our nation.
I’m sick of this type of so-called leadership.
Soon all the jobs at McDonald’s will be filled by people with PhDs.
Two losers talking about something they know nothing about.
Education is inherently local & immediate. It involves the interaction of the individual student with a teacher or with another source. It can be self-directed, of course; but to the extent it is standardized by a bureaucracy, it is self-defeating. The essence of real education must be directed towards the unique personality of the student.
The fallacy, reflected here, in the arrogance of Mr. Bush & Mrs. Clinton, flows directly from the fantasy world of the egalitarian/collectivist; the compulsion to believe that all people have the same educational needs; the same educational potential.
Possibly so. But then, the way things are going, having a Phd. degree may soon correspond to a good Fourth Grade education in McGuffey's Day.
Since Mena if not before.
Careful Jeb, Juan McCain has a short fuse.
We’d be better served by picking 435 members to congress from the phone book.
Send the 100 senate members back to their states.
Make all house and senate staffers unpaid interns/volunteers.
Adopt a “Flat or Fair tax” (this would greatly reduce corporate lobbying)
Close the Dept. of Education.
Close the EPA.
Close the Dept. of Labor.
Close the Dept. of Commerce.
Close the DHS.
Close the Dept. of anything that is better served at the State level.
I would consider keeping the FDA and the energy Dept.
Transition from a Federally run welfare system to a state run system.
Cut Federal taxes via the “flat or fair tax” and allow states to tax accordingly.
Fundamentally, ALL rules should be dictated and enforced at a local level.
What about a 2 term limit like el presidente.
Stay out da MF’ing Bushies.
Globalist new world order cretans
I have no doubt that if Zerocare had been a success, 0bama would try to run for a third term.
He still may try, but would need 60 plus in the Senate and control of the House.
Don’t all those people in all those countries already HAVE governments whose job it is to protect their interests??
New World Order, my FRiend....
We need to send these two to to the trash heap.
I second that!
The business of the Bush/Clinton Syndicate is the advancement of the Globalist NWO Agenda.
I can’t be anymore obvious.
This has nothing to do with the needs and potential of the “educated” rather it has everything to do with preserving the power and privilege of those who provide the “education.”
I look at these two oligarchs and wonder....why did our ancestors bother with a revolution 238 years ago? Do we have that much more freedom than the Brits have under a monarch? Are our kakistocrats that much more enlightened than parliament?
Picking 435 people out of the phone book would represent an orders of magnitude improvement. Picking 435 drunks out of a local drunk tank would seem like a political renaissance.
There are certainly demagogues who seek to benefit from collectivist/egalitarian fantasies: Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Hitler, Obama & Mrs. Clinton, of course, come to mind. But unless you recognize the compulsion driven fantasy that they seek to exploit, you will never effectively deal with them.
By effectively conceding the absurd premises of the Left, the implied notions of human interchangeability & cultural plasticity, for prime examples, most contemporary Conservatives have put themselves on the ideological defensive, where those demagogues can easily play on their resulting weakness. I have been fighting the collectivists since High School, many decades ago, and the only arguments for which they have no glib, but misleading, answer, are those which go to their Achilles Heel--those fantasy premises.
Those premises lead directly to the Blame & Envy Cocktail, with which they promote class warfare; to insane immigration policies, where nominal or "compassionate conservatives" carry water for them (see Answer To George W. Bush On Immigration; and to a foreign policy that is actually destructive of legitimate aspirations in the Third World.
Those premises would continue to destroy the quality of education in America, even if the subject power seekers all moved to North Korea.
I think you are indulging in a flair for the rhetorical, and understand perfectly well that the motives for the Revolution were precisely to stop arrogant & distant political leaders from imposing "one-size will be made to fit all" policies upon distant communities. Anyone carefully reading the Declaration Of Independence, and the Constitution, will clearly see that what Mrs. Clinton & Mr. Bush are advocating is an utter reversal of the principles of the Founding Fathers.
The Constitution grants very specific powers to the Federal Government--clearly defined functions. It is no accident that matters such as civilian education, health care, morals & religion were left out; were left by the clearest omission (as compared to the great specificity as to the powers granted) to the States & the people.
Incidentally, everything considered, the British Government against which they rebelled was far less oppressive than the present British Government, which is hardly genuinely Conservative.
