Support Title I Funding

Please join us in requesting an appropriation for Title I-A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of an amount truly reflective of program need, but no less than $17 billion, an amount $1.1 billion above the enacted FY19 level.  Such an appropriation

Title I-A allocations.
