— Organizers of an education rally featuring former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush have released details on the event, which is set for next week.

Bush, governor from 1999 to 2007, will speak Tuesday at the A+ Arkansas Education Rally at the state Capitol. The rally begins at 9:15 a.m. in the rotunda and will be followed by an Education Summit at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Little Rock.

Bush is also chairman of the Foundation for Excellence in Education and is sometimes mentioned as a possible candidate for president in 2016.

The summit will feature panel discussions with teachers, administrators, business leaders, education experts and policymakers, Cabot-based A+ Arkansas said in a release.

The speakers include Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Publisher Walter Hussman, Dillard's Chief Executive Officer Bill Dillard, Arkansas State Teachers Association Executive Director Michele Lunch and state Sen. Johnny Key, R-Mountain Home.

Attendees can RSVP for the summit by e-mailing info@aplusarkansas.org, organizers said.
