In general, the 2001 ESEA Act provides local school districts with more flexibility. However, a caveat to that additional flexibility is that there is increased accountability as well. In addition, there is an increased emphasis on using “what works” (science-based programs and strategies). There are also requirements for increased parental involvement and options and increased opportunities for the involvement of private school children and teachers.
The programs governed by the ESEA are:
Title I Part A, Improving Basic Programs
Title I Part A, Statewide System of Support
Title I Part C, Migrant Education
Title I Part D, Neglected, Delinquent & At-Risk Youth
Title I Part G, Advanced Placement
Title II Part A, Improving Teacher Quality
Title II Part A, State Level Activities
Title II Part B, Math & Science Partnership Grant
Title III Part A, English Acquisition & Enhancement
Title IV Part A, Safe & Drug-Free
Title IV Part B, 21st Century
