WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Obama will appear in Miami Friday with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush to highlight education as a key element of economic growth. "The President will deliver remarks on the importance of out-educating our competition" the White House said in a statement.
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will also join the president and Governor Bush at Miami Central Senior High School.
The White House is touting the school as a model of how addressing education challenges can lead to progress.
Central High was awarded grant funds designed to help "persistently low-achieving schools."
The Florida trip is the latest stop on a cross country tour by the president to push innovation and job creation.
