Bush Wants Education Law Kept After he Leaves

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The president argues that do so would "weaken a chance for a child to succeed in America.''

The president marked the seventh anniversary of No Child Left
Behind today with remarks at General Philip Kearny School in
Philadelphia. It was his final policy address as president.

No Child Left Behind remains one of Bush's top domestic
achievements, and he considers it vital to his legacy. Approved
with strong bipartisan support in 2001, the school accountability
law still has support from key Democrats, but it has grown deeply
unpopular, and Obama has pledged to revamp it.

But Bush says, "Now is not the time to water down standards or
to roll back accountability.''
