Former Florida Gov. and possible 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush is planning to visit a college-preparatory middle school in Oklahoma City.
The school received an "A'' grade from the Oklahoma State Department of Education's new A-F grading system and is touted as an example of a successful school in an urban setting with high poverty rates.
Fallin and Bush are expected to participate in a discussion with teachers and administrators, followed by a meeting with students.
KIPP, or the Knowledge Is Power Program, has schools nationwide and is frequently cited as an example of a successful charter schools network.
