No Bush Left Behind: NCLB Used as Bush Friends and Family Profit Plan

The implimentation of No Child Left Behind may have been a disaster for education, but it has sure helped at least on Bush. Business Week reports that Neil Bush is selling instructional software designed to teach to the test. Bush’s company expects to make $5 million off of this in 2006. This isn’t the first time Neil’s company has made the news. Back in March there were reports that Barbara Bush donated money to the “Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund with specific instructions that the money be spent with an educational software company owned by her son Neil.” This also follows other recent reports of NCLB being used to benefit Bush cronies.

    I thought this was common knowledge! My ex-boss (the Bush supporter) and I talked about this aspect of NCLB a few years ago. We found ourselves in rare agreement that the possibility of entire public schools districts failing, only to be replaced by private corporations, could be the worst marriage of capitalism and (her words) communism, that we’d ever known!

    And yes, the Bush family stood to profit. (Of course.)
