Bush aims to meet King's goals
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
HOUSTON - President-elect
Bush celebrated Martin Luther
King Jr. for seeing “the image of
God in everyone” and, in a
Monday commemoration of the
civil rights hero, promised wary
black Americans: “My job will be
to listen not only to the success
ful, but also to the suffering.”
The former Republican gov
ernor of Texas, who won a dismal
5 percent of black votes in his
home state and one in nine
nationwide, took a brief break
from preparations for his inaugu
ral activities to reach out to
minorities on the King holiday.
“I will remember die promise
etched in this day,” Bush said at
the predominantly black and
Hispanic Kelso Elementary
School, which was closed for the
federal holiday. “Dr. King’s dream
placed demands on each of us.”
Bush cast education reform
as his own civil rights mission
and said equal opportunity
eludes students in bad schools.
“The dream of equality is
empty without excellent schools
- schools that stress reading and
discipline and character and
decency. That goal will take presi
dential leadership...,” Bush said.
“It is a goal we will work endlessly
Bush has pledged that his first
priority after being sworn in
Saturday will be congressional
passage of his voucher plan to
take government money away
from consistently failing public
schools and give the funds to par
ents to send their children else
