Letís not be afraid of standardized testing for students. Letís not be afraid of testing teachersí qualifications. Letís not be afraid of charter schools. Letís not be afraid of using private scholarship money to give poor parents a choice that wealthy parents have. Letís not be afraid of home schooling. Letís experiment prudently with school voucher programs to see if they help. What are we afraid of? Letís use innovation and competition, good old American innovation, good old American competition to help give our children the best education possible.
Gov. Bush now offers the leadership [in education] that he has demonstrated in Texas to the nation. In pursuing education reform, Gov. Bush has reached out to all Texans -- white, black, Latino, Asian, Native American.
