President Defines Reading: Skip Fancy Theories (and Read My Lips)

"And so we have decided here at the federal level to make a national initiative being one that every child's going to read. And the reason Arkansas and Alabama are here is they also understand that it requires a curriculum that works if you want every child to read. They don't need fancy theories, or what may sound good. Science is not an art -- I mean, reading is not an art; it's a science. We know what works."

--from remarks by President Bush at the White House East Room during a discussion with educators from several states on how they are implementing the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act.
