What We're Reading | April 20, 2012

April 20, 2012 by George W. Bush Presidential Center

On Taxes, Trade and Much Else, Bush 43 Has It Right: At the Bush Institute’s conference on Tax Policies for 4% Growth, Steve Forbes sat down with President George W. Bush to get his thoughts on tax cuts, trade wars, and how the  Four Percent Growth Project is changing the conversation about the economy. (Forbes, Steve Forbes) Consider the Principal: The responsibilities of school principals have grown exponentially over the past several decades, which likely contributes to why they are considered to be one of the chief components of a good school.  Education experts from across the nation (including our own, Kerri Briggs) weigh in on the future of American Education and how the role of the principal “is a critical element in turning around a low-performing school.” (National Journal, Fawn Johnson) Why Did Anyone Believe Bashar al-Assad’s Promises of a Ceasefire to Begin With?: Bashar al-Assad, the President of Syria, has reneged on yet another promise to the Syrian people and, quite frankly, the world.  The latest vow included an April 10th ceasefire, which has come and gone with no action by either Assad or the Security Council.  While little is known of the next steps for peace in Syria, “Bashar’s legacy leaves little reason to believe that diplomacy is a promising way to deal with him.”(The New Republic, Radwan  Ziadeh)
