United States Code, 2013 Edition
Title 20 – EDUCATION – STRENGTHENING AND IMPROVEMENT OF ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS
SUBCHAPTER I – IMPROVING THE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT OF THE DISADVANTAGED
Sec. 6303 – School improvement
(a) State reservations
Each State shall reserve 2 percent of the amount the State receives under subpart 2 of part A of this subchapter for fiscal years 2002 and 2003, and 4 percent of the amount received under such subpart for fiscal years 2004 through 2007, to carry out subsection (b) of this section and to carry out the State’s responsibilities under sections 6316 and 6317 of this title, including carrying out the State educational agency’s statewide system of technical assistance and support for local educational agencies.
Of the amount reserved under subsection (a) of this section for any fiscal year, the State educational agency—
(1) shall allocate not less than 95 percent of that amount directly to local educational agencies for schools identified for school improvement, corrective action, and restructuring, for activities under section 6316(b);
The State educational agency, in allocating funds to local educational agencies under this section, shall give priority to local educational agencies that—
(1) serve the lowest-achieving schools;
(2) demonstrate the greatest need for such funds
How does funding low performing schools improve the academic achievement of the disadvantaged?
Funding the closing and reopening of school buildings and restructuring the administration has had no effect on the failure of LEA’s to provide an excellent education to children who live in urban and rural areas.

What does this have to do with educating children?
Our current system of education funds failure and collects data.
Changing the focus of education so that it concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of all children is the only way to achieve educational success.
