“Bush’s charter schools are not performing as well as he had predicted. Public school students are outperforming in just about every category.

The President’s plans have placed a heavy burden on states, without providing the monetary resources to restructure and implement the No Child Left Behind initiatives. The loss of funds and resources caused by Bush’s initiative could have been redirected towards public school growth, rather than restructuring. Test scores may have been even higher as a result.

This is just one of many social issues that the President has misguided the nation. The gap is continuously increasing between the wealthy and the poor. The number of people in the middle continues to decrease as well with offshoring, and other job losses.
