Title I has existed since the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 The federal government first began to authorize formula grants to states and districts for the education of elementary and secondary students –low academic achievement –schools serving low-income areas.
Four primary goals: 1.Provide supplementary education to students eligible for services; 2.Provide additional funding to schools and districts serving high concentrations of children from low-income families; 3.Focus educators on the needs of special student populations; and 4.Improve the academic achievement of eligible students, reduce performance gaps between advantaged and disadvantaged students, and assist eligible students in meeting high academic standards (Riddle, 1996).
STANDARDS-BASED EDUCATION Have academic standards for all public elementary and secondary school students; Test students in English and math every year between grades 3 and 8 and once in high school; Report on student achievement by average school performance, as well as by the performance of specified subgroups; Ensure that all students are academically proficient by the spring of 2014; and Hold districts and schools accountable for demonstrating adequate yearly progress in student achievement.
