This is a repost of my weekly Da Tech Guy Column: Hillary Made $225K Off Jeb Bush Tied Ed Group
By A.P. Dillon
Well, it would appear that an education outfit threw over $225k to Hillary Clinton for a speaking engagement back in March, 2014.

The article is short, go read it.
The outfit is called Academic Partnerships. Their mission is the ‘globalization’ of everything Higher Education related.
Check out their advisory board. As a Tarheel state resident, I noted former Governor and Common Core peddler, Jim Hunt, being on the list.
Bush and Hunt were also involved in a 2011 conference called, ‘Future of State Universities‘. Do not miss the video from Dr. Dick Ferguson (Former CEO of ACT) on ‘College Readiness’, with an introduction by Hunt touting the amazing Common Core.
The Globalization of Higher Education conference was put together by Bush and former North Carolina Democratic Gov. Jim Hunt, who’s worked with Clinton in the past

Not only was Clinton a speaker, Jeb Bush was too — and he invited her.
Former Republican Gov. of Florida Jeb Bush invited the former Democratic senator to the two-day event, marking their third appearance together this year. More than 250 leaders of both U.S. and international universities will continue to meet through Tuesday to discuss the potential American higher education has to serve millions of students around the world. Clinton was among the 15 speakers, who also include former North Carolina Gov. Jim Hunt and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

We know what Hillary was paid. Was Jeb paid too? Also, where does the money for all of these high priced speakers come from? How does Academic Partnerships make their money? Academic Partnerships appears to be a for-profit company.
Jeb and Hillary are more alike than not. They are certainly arm in arm on Education, ‘globalization’ and Common Core.
