- Title 1
- Title 1 is the largest federal education-funding program. It provides funding for high poverty schools to help students who are behind academically or at risk of falling behind. Many of NCLB's requirements - Adequate Yearly Progress, Highly Qualified teacher and teacher assistant standards, accountability, sanctions for schools designated for improvement, achievement standards and assessments, annual state report cards, professional development and parent involvement - were first outlined in Title I.
