President Bush addressed an audience of teachers, parents and students in a Catholic school in Pennsylvania on the need for education reform in American schools and his plans for a “GI Bill for Children” that would provide education scholarships for needy children applicable to private or public schools. Introduced by the archbishop of Pennsylvania and a student at the school, President Bush sat on a stool surrounded by the audience to respond to questions on education and other issues. In response to a question on whether his school choice proposal would be available to middle-income families, President Bush said it would cover middle-class families. Later in the day a White House spokesperson said the plan would apply to families earning below the state or national median income, and would further depend on the amount of funding available in the program. close
