President Bush visits with school children in Bakersfield, Calif., March 4, 2004. "I don't think that's too high a standard, to expect a child to read at 3rd grade when they're in the 3rd grade. As a matter of fact, you know, I think it is -- I think it is perfectly reasonable to ask school districts to at least accomplish that," said the President discussing the Reading First grant program in Bethesda, Md., May 12, 2004. "There are 1,000 districts that now get Reading First grants. There are 3,600 schools getting Reading First grants. There's been 73,000 teachers trained in the curriculum that works."
