PRESIDENTIAL STRATEGERY

Notes John Spragens of the Nashville Scene about the presidential visit to a Nashville school last week: "Why did President Bush visit East Literature Magnet School last week on his fundraising trip to Nashville? 'Because this is a center of excellence, a school that refuses to leave any child behind,' was his politically familiar explanation....[But as] the commander-in-chief spoke to 200 students and 300 invited adult guests, 400 students in the school's fifth through 12th grades were, er, left behind in their classrooms on 'lockdown,' a word normally reserved for occasions of violence or dangerous intruders."
