Neil Bush Still Has Scandal on a Short Leash
But now we learn that the inspector general of the Department of Education is investigating whether or not schools improperly used funds obtained through the No Child Left Behind Act to pay for the Ignite products. The very same No Child Left Behind Act, of course, that his brother signed into law shortly after arriving at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Critics argue that Ignite's products do not meet the standards of the No Child law, and that school districts in Texas, Florida, and Nevada buy the software for political consideration.
Ken Leonard, president of Ignite, said in a statement that it does not know when its customers use federal funds to buy its products. "Ignite! Learning has no knowledge of any customer that has procured our curriculum solutions through means which are other than completely ethical and in compliance with the typical guidelines of their various funding sources."
The same Post article said this about Bush: "Ah, it's nice to be Neil Bush, who seems to be living the lifestyle immortalized in those famous Dire Straits lyrics: "Money for nothin' and chicks for free.""
That's the way ya do it.
