Title I Monitor jumps on the Title I comparability issue: Marguerite “Commodore” Roza and Paul “Dr. Diabolical” Hill lay out why it matters and Andrew Brownstein and Charles Edwards give a longish insidery view of the history and status quo.

Roza and Hill: “Districts routinely spend a larger share of state and local funds intended to support basic instruction on schools with fewer poor students.”
