The article reports on the appeal made by President George Bush regarding the reauthorization of landmark education reform in the U.S. Bush urged conservative Republicans not to block the education bill because it is central to his domestic legacy. He also warned congressional Democrats whom conservatives suspect will seize the expiration of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act which will expand the federal spending on education. The president urged the Congress to reauthorize NCLB.
