"Slashing Education"

In his speech in Detroit, President Bush said, “To keep America competitive, we’ve got to make sure that the education system works.”

FACT: In his 2006 budget, President Bush is eliminating “$1.1 billion in state vocational education grants, $496 million for educational technology grants, and $437 million for safe and drug free schools.”

Update: All of the rapid response blog posts have been updated now that the transcript of the President’s Detroit speech has been released.
