Title I Schools: Are They Meeting the Needs of Our Students

This research examined the positive and negative attributes to schools that are designated Title I and receive federal funding to help raise student achievement. This study was conducted using publicly available CST data from the California Department of Education website. The research looks at a five-year data analysis of language arts and mathematics scores at the elementary school level at three case study schools. The results were analyzed to determine if it was in the district’s best interest to make a school Title I when they met the criteria to receive federal funds.
