    Pearson School provides an easy to understand overview of federally Title 1 funding. This is definitely worth printing because it clearly describes what Title 1 is, how Title 1 funds are generally distributed, and what can be funded.

    This one-page overview of Title 1 by is a great resource to share with parents, however it's also a great overview for teachers unfamiliar with Title 1. Because it is targeted to parents, it is also an excellent resource to help teachers understand and address the questions, concerns, and perceptions parents may have of Title 1.

    Sarah Malburg does a great job of explaining the history, evolution and purpose of Title 1 funding. The straight-forward, factual format along with the additional resources provided at the end of the article make this one I turn to repeatedly.
