The Foundation for Excellence in Education is a think tank on education reform based in Tallahassee, Florida.
The foundation was established by Jeb Bush, shortly after his tenure as Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007. It has received donations from Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg and Eli Broad, as well as Connections Education, a subsidiary of Pearson PLC, and Amplify, a subsidiary of NewsCorp.
The education reform policies suggested by the foundation have influenced Mitch Daniels, the Republican Governor of Indiana. Nicky Morgan, the British Secretary of State for Education, spoke at the 2014 Foundation for Excellence in Education Summit on November 20, 2014.
