The Facts About...Reading First.
Reading First is one of the most important components of President George W. Bush's "No Child Left Behind Act"--the bipartisan law to improve American education. It sets aside $900 million this year to ensure that schools use only scientifically based instruction and teaching methods. This informational brochure explains how Reading First will help children learn to read, citing what a Reading First grant will do in each state, pointing out that Reading First federal grants will only go to those programs that will help teachers help students excel, noting that Reading First prevents federal money from financing "unproven fads and untested ideas," and stating that Reading First highlights success so schools can see how scientifically based teaching methods and curricula can transform schools.
