Resolution on Title 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act

Resolution on Title 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act

Model Policy

Since 1965, the Title 1 programs of the federal Elementary & Secondary Education Act (ESEA) has failed to boost the academic achievement of the students the program purports to serve,

WHEREAS, the federal involvement in education ties the hands of the states with mandates, paperwork, and bureaucracy,

WHEREAS, Congress does not allow states to consolidate the funds in the Title 1 programs of ESEA program to help existing state reforms and in some cases hinders state reform,

Now therefore be it resolved that: the {legislative body} of the state of {name of state} urges Congress to empower {name of state} with the ability to tie Title 1 dollars to students and allow them to carry the money to the school or providence of their choice (depending on the extent of state constitutional law).
