Bush's family profits from 'No Child' act
By Walter F. Roche Jr., Times Staff Writer
October 22, 2006


A company headed by President Bush's brother and partly owned by his parents is benefiting from Republican connections and federal dollars targeted for economically disadvantaged students under the No Child Left Behind Act.

With investments from his parents, George H.W. and Barbara Bush, and other backers, Neil Bush's company, Ignite! Learning, has placed its products in 40 U.S. school districts and now plans to market internationally.

At least 13 U.S. school districts have used federal funds available through the president's signature education reform, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, to buy Ignite's portable learning centers at $3,800 apiece.

2. That's a no-brainer, if the BFEE can't profit from their actions...
Then they don't act at all. Pretty simple :shrug:
