Strike Education From The List of Bush Accomplishments


by Steve

A New York Times piece this morning pokes large holes in the claims about the Texas education “miracle”, where Bush and his Education Secretary Rod Paige made their dubious mark on the subject. After earlier reports that showed the Houston dropout rates were artificially inflated due to the exclusion of underperforming, and largely minority students from figures, it is now revealed that the Texas program seriously underprepares their own students to academically succeed in college, as compared to other states.

So much for using education in those Bush commercials next year.
