Barbara Bush Forms Family Literacy Foundation

Barbara Bush

Pol Light Moment #150 
occurred in 1989, when Barbara Bush formed the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. Barbara Bush served as First Lady from 1989-1993, when her husband George H.W. Bush was President of the United States. Prior to that she was the Second Lady of the United States from 1981-1989. She is also the mother of former President George W. Bush.

The focus of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy is together to provide early childhood education for preschoolers and to help their parents to read through adult literacy programs. The Fact Sheet of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy says, "Our founder and former First Lady Barbara Bush believes that family literacy is key to solving today's most critical challenges: social and economic mobility, quality of life, and global competitiveness (BBF Fact Sheet)."

The following is a video showing some of the many accomplishments over the years of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy led by Barbara Bush's dedication to this great cause.

Pol Light does not endorse political candidates. We present a brighter side to politics when they are found on either side of the aisle. We don't have to agree with all of a person's politics to recognize these bright moments.
