JUNE 15, 2001

The Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly approved an education bill to reform the nation's public school system, a top priority of President Bush.

By a vote of 91 to 8, the Senate approved a similar bill that the House passed last month. The bill requires mandatory annual testing of students in reading and mathematics: schools that don't meet requirements would face loss of federal funds if they don't show improvement.

The bill doesn't include a school voucher program, which Bush supports.
