Bush Earmarks 1.5B Gold Stars For Education
“Vowing to give the nation’s public schools “a much-needed boost,” President Bush announced Monday that his 2003 budget proposal would allocate 1.5 billion gold-star stickers for education.”

Caption reads: “Bush holds up a Dayton, OH, fourth-grader’s gold-star-adorned book report on Ferdinand Magellan.”
