Authored by Wayne Riddle, a veteran of the Congressional Research Service and one of the nation’s foremost experts on Title I, this paper explains in detail the process in which states, districts, and schools receive Title I funding, and discusses the low level of support that high schools receive from Title I. New data in this report includes a state-by-state analysis of the number of high-poverty high schools that are not eligible for Title I.
