You left one out:
I became president after winning the electoral college vote which is how the office holder is selected.
Bush also gave teachers in Texas the raise they were promised by Ann Richards.
I'm not a teacher and I certainly don't live in Texas, but my sister was a teacher for years in Texas and is now a high school counselor there. She thinks the testing programs implemented by Bush are a bogus waste of time and resources, and have done nothing but hurt the education process - by now requiring students to be taught strictly to pass the test instead of well-rounded learning in general.
Any thoughts on this, Bryan?
