Comparing George Bush and Al Gore

George Bush has seven principles of reform, only four of which I will elaborate on, for a better quality education in our nation’s schools: (1) Achieve Equality; Just as Bush is closing the achievement gap in Texas, he plans to do so across the states (2) Promote Excellence; Bush believes in clearly defined standards of basic skills plus crucial knowledge. The states should devise tests to ensure that the standards are met (3) Ensure that Every Child Can Read; Statistics show that 70% of 4th graders in low income schools cannot read. Bush stands firm that reading is the pathway to learning and will make sure that every child can read by 3rd grade (4) Improve School Safety; Juvenile gun laws will be enforced (5) Stop Funding Failure Schools (6) Restore Local Control (7) Give Parents Information and Options
Al Gore’s main concern with education is the Opportunity Gap. Gore proclaims, “Today, what you earn depends upon what you learn… All of our people will need to reach higher skills and education that ever before to succeed.” Gore has eight main goals on his agenda for improving education in America:
· Providing pre-school for every child in order to have the best start in their education and in life;
· Making high schools a “center of excellence” for all students even if that means breaking down extremely large schools through the concept of “schools within schools”;
· Improving teacher quality;
· Turning around failing schools (which is the opposite of Bush’s theory);
· Using high technology to produce educational progress;
· A new focal point on discipline, character values, safety and parental involvement;
· Create a 401(j) savings account to make college and job training more affordable;
· Tax-free savings accounts for college more accessible and transferable as families move.
I think that the only things that our schools need are (1) Recognizing advanced students and providing advanced education (2) Providing more money to public schools, especially high schools (3) More advanced technology and provide training in more advanced technological equipment.
ABORTION
In short terms, Bush is against abortion. He believes in pro life with exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother. He plans to set the goal that all children should be welcomed in life and protected by law. He supports parental notification, banning use of taxpayer funds for abortion, and banning partial birth abortion. He also supports the increasing of adoptions to prevent abortions. He opposes doctor assisted suicide and...
