Alexander has run for president twice and has written seven books including Six Months Off, the story of his family’s life in Australia after eight years in the Governor’s residence. A longtime advocate of public education, Alexander served as U.S. Secretary of Education for President George Bush and has received the highest honors given by the Education Commission of the States and the National College Athletic Association.
