On January 20, 2001, George W. Bush was inaugurated as the new president of the United States. In 2005, he was inaugurated for a second term that would end in 2009. His two terms were marked by important historical events.
At home in the United States, two topics addressed by President Bush were money and education. One of the most damaging hurricanes in US history also occurred during his presidency.
One of the first things that President Bush did when he became president was to promise a tax cut to the American people, and in 2001, tax cuts were made.
In 2002, President Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act. This law promised to give a better education to American children and to make sure that all children did well in school. Although the idea of No Child Left Behind was praised by many, critics argued that the federal government never provided the money needed to make the law effective.
