George H.W. Bush on the Education Presidency in the Debate with Governor Michael Dukakis
September 25, 1988
I want to be the education President, because I want to see us do better. We're putting more money per child into education, and we are not performing as we should. [...] And I would like to urge the school superintendents and the others around the country to stand up now and keep us moving forward on a path towards real excellence.
