The major goals of Title I funding are to provide services to children in low income families and to support school districts with large numbers of poor children. In 2015 ESSA mandated a report examining the distribution of Title I funds to better understand how the current formulas affect various types of school districts—large and small, poor and wealthy, urban, and rural. AIR conducted this report with the National Center for Education Statistics.

Three AIR experts discussed those variations, and excerpts of their conversation appear below.
