The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) (Pub. L. 89-10, 79 Stat.  27, 20 U. S. C.  ch. 70) is a United States federal statute enacted April 11, 1965. The Act is an extensive statute which funds primary and secondary education, while explicitly forbidding the establishment of a national curriculum. As mandated in the Act, the funds are authorized for professional development, instructional materials, resources to support educational programs, and parental involvement promotion. The Act was originally authorized through 1970, however the government has reauthorized the Act every five years since its enactment. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. The ESEA also allows military recruiters access to 11th and 12th grade students' names, addresses, and telephone listings when requested. Title I—Financial Assistance To Local Educational Agencies For The Education Of Children Of Low-Income Families Title II—School Library Resources, Textbooks, and other Instructional Materials Title III—Supplementary Educational Centers and Services Title IV—Educational Research And Training Title V—Grants To Strengthen State Departments Of Education Title VI—General ProvisionsTitle I ("Title One") of the Act is a set of programs set up by the United States Department of Education to distribute funding to schools and school districts with a high percentage of students from low-income families. To qualify as a Title I school, a school typically has around 40% or more of its students that come from families that qualify under the United States Census's definitions as low-income, according to the U. S. Department of Education. Schools receiving Title I funding are regulated by federal legislation, including the No Child Left Behind Act. Title I funds may be used for children from preschool through high school, but most of the students served (65 percent) are in grades 1 through 6; another 12 percent are in preschool and kindergarten programs. Title III of ESEA originally provided matching grants for supplementary education centers (Political Education, Cross 2004). Title III was the innovations component of ESEA. It was, for its time, the greatest federal investment in education innovation ever. Its best innovations, after validation, became part of the National Diffusion Network. This section of the original ESEA provided for the strengthening of state departments of education (Political Education, Cross 2004). Added during the 1967 reauthorization of ESEA, Title VII introduced a program for bilingual education. It was championed by Texas Democrat Ralph Yarborough (Political Education, Cross 2004). It is worth noting that Title VII was replaced in the most recent reauthorization of the ESEA, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, and is now Title III “Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students. ”Recent reauthorizations of the Act include:
