(JOINED IN PROGRESS)
GOV. GEORGE W. BUSH (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: ... meet the standards and the hope, to meet the expectations of parents from all walks of life, to insist that every single child can and must learn.
To the teachers who are here, from both this fine school and the school across the street, thank you for your hospitality.
To the principal of this school, thank you for putting up with this madhouse that tends to follow somebody running for the presidency.
For the parents, thank you for your concern and care of love for your children.
One of the reasons I came to this school was because I love to highlight beacons of hope, centers of excellence that challenge the odds. One of the common denominators I have found is that expectations rise above that which is expected.
One of the things I have known to be true is that there's -- a good school is one that's run by innovative principal and educational entrepreneur. A good school is one where the hopes of all exceed the hopes of a process that sometimes drags people down. People willing to challenge what I call the soft bigotry of low expectations.
MESERVE: Governor George W. Bush of Texas, the Republican nominee, talking in California, a key state about a key issue: education.
