Description

The largest and most expensive federal education program, Title I, is meant to ensure that poor children living in high-poverty school districts have access to the same education opportunities as their wealthier peers. But our investigation found that 20 percent of Title I money - $2.6 billion - ends up in school districts with higher than average proportions of wealthy families. Because of quirks in the formula that doles out the money, Title I can often increase the local funding inequality that it was created to stop. Despite various policy proposals that would direct more money to concentrations of poverty, Congress has lacked the will to act. http://www.usnews.com/news/slideshows/which-schools-receive-the-most-title-i-funding http://www.usnews.com/photos/2016/06/01/photos-fairfax-virginia-school-district http://www.usnews.com/photos/2016/06/01/photos-nottoway-virginia-school-district
