Federal Title I Program Seen as Neglecting Disadvantaged Schools

“Strengthening Title I to Help High-Poverty Schools: How Title I Funds Fit Into District Allocation Patterns” is posted by the Center on Reinventing Public Education..

The federal program to help educate disadvantaged students in public schools is flawed, concludes a report.

Loopholes in the $13 billion Title I program allow districts to funnel money intended to help low-income students to more affluent schools, says the report, which was released Aug. 18. Conducted by researchers at the Center on Reinventing Public Education at the University of Washington in Seattle, the report found that school districts didn’t take into account low salaries for teachers in high-poverty schools when calculating how Title I money should be allocated. The report recommends, in part, that Congress revise Title I legislation to make sure salary differentials are used in those calculations.
