TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Jeb Bush and some key players from his administration are doing their best to keep education on the front burner with legislators.

The former two-term governor, former Lt. Gov. Frank Brogan and former state Rep. Allan Bense, who was speaker during Bush's second term, gathered Thursday to revisit Florida's state of affairs in education.

Gov. Charlie Crist, who replaced Bush and is now seeking a U.S. Senate seat, joined in the news conference that took on the look of a Bush administration reunion, but was billed as a proposal aimed at better educating Florida's youth to bolster the state's work force and rekindle its floundering economy.

Bush is rarely seen around the Capitol since leaving office three years ago.
