President Bush spoke to members of Congress, educators, business leaders, and reporters in the White House to announce his new program for improving education in America. His plan included voluntary national testing of students to determine their school’s relative academic level compared to the rest of the country, unconventional schools, and allowing the use of Federal money to send disadvantaged children to public, private, or parochial schools. Saying, “There will be no renaissance without revolution,” President Bush reaffirmed his administration’s support of parental choice in the selection of schools for their children, and advocated the construction of new schools and differentiated pay for teachers on the basis of their teaching ability or their teaching environment. close
