Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release October 14, 1993
STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
I am pleased by last night's overwhelming vote in the House
of Representatives in favor of my Goals 2000 education reform
bill. This bill takes an important step towards codifying into
law the National Education Goals.
Goals 2000 invites every state to participate in true
systemic reform and will serve as the cornerstone of my
administration's efforts to create a world-class system of
education and training with high expectations and opportunities
for every child.
I want to thank Chairmen Bill Ford and Dale Kildee and
other Democratic members of the Education and Labor committee,
whose experienced leadership and cooperation across party lines
were crucial to attaining this important victory.
I am especially gratified by the broad bipartisan support
that Goals 2000 enjoys. I want to thank the many distinguished
Republicans--starting with Reps Bill Goodling and Steve
Gunderson--who worked hard over many months to improve this bill
and who spoke out so forcefully on its behalf yesterday. And I
congratulate Secretary of Education Riley and Secretary of Labor
Reich, whose unswerving commitment and effective advocacy were
The enactment of my comprehensive education and training
agenda is crucial to achieving an economy that can compete
effectively in world markets and create high-skill, high-wage
jobs for all Americans. I urge the Senate to bring this
legislation to the floor as quickly as possible and approve it
with bipartisan support.
It will be a great day for the children of America and for
all Americans when I am able to sign Goals 2000 into law.
