Inequities in funding are foundational to all sorts of other inequities in our schools. Yet as a nation, we continue to spend less on educating our low-income students and students of color — the very students who could benefit most from additional support in their schools.
To call attention to these inequities and spur action to turn them around, we:
- Provide data tools and analysis that highlight funding gaps between high- and low-poverty districts as well as between districts serving the most and the fewest students of color, nationally and within each state
- Spotlight — and advocate for closing — gaps that often remain hidden: those between high- and low-poverty schools within the same school district
- Fight to ensure that federal Title I dollars flow to the high-poverty schools and districts that need them most.
