Tightening Up Title I

Online registration for this event is closed. Walk-in registrations will be accepted.

Please note this event is taking place at the Center for American Progress.
Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 is the largest school program operated by the US Department of Education. While Title I began as a program to ameliorate the educational disadvantages of growing up in concentrated poverty, it has evolved into a broader tool aimed at achieving equity by closing achievement gaps. Through statutes, regulations, and guidance, Title I directs the behavior of school districts and state educational agencies. And today, it has become the heart of an education reform movement to bolster academic achievement.
Panelists at this joint American Enterprise Institute and Center for American Progress event will present seven new papers that discuss ways to both improve Title I and better monitor the expenditure of Title I funds. With the reauthorization of the ESEA looming on the horizon, the papers will also draw on existing data to develop recommendations for policymakers.
