Title I Summary

Title I: Compensatory Education at the Crossroads by Geoffrey D. Borman

This volume presents the most recent research on Title I federal compensatory education programs. Over the past three decades, Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act has served as the cornerstone of the federal commitment to equality of opportunity. It is the federal government's single largest investment in America's schools. As Title I begins a new century, this book documents the program's history and points to the potential for its future, building on 35 years of research, development, and practical experience. The research and analysis it provides fills a void for systematic information that can help inform Title I education policies and practices.

Title I: Compensatory Education at the Crossroads is essential reading for educational researchers and students working in the areas of social stratification and equity-minded policies, programs, and practices. It will serve well as a text for graduate courses on these topics in education, as well as in public policy, sociology, and psychology. Educational policymakers and administrators at the federal, state, and local levels who are concerned with Title I and programs for students placed at risk will find it an important resource in crafting policies and programs for this population of students.

Title I Reviews

"This volume shows how high-quality research too rarely informs debate and how the application of good research can get distorted when viewed through ideological lenses....Recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above."

"Very timely...addresses some of the critical issues inherent in federal funding of education. It examines the history of Title I/Chapter 1, home-school and parent programs, different school models (such as pull-out, inclusion, remediation, and comprehensive programs), accountability issues, and evaluation of programs, all in relation to student achievement. Within this framework, the book is powerful and useful."
-Jonathan Brendefur
University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Particularly timely....The review of relevant readers unfamiliar with Title I a solid background....For readers who are well acquainted, the book...provides an analysis of critical issues related to Title I programs....I like this book....I will eagerly include it in my professional library."
-Dianne L. Taylor
Louisiana State University
