The purpose of this title is to provide grants to State educational agencies and subgrants to local educational agencies to—
- increase student achievement consistent with the challenging State academic standards;
- improve the quality and effectiveness of teachers, principals, and other school leaders;
- increase the number of teachers, principals, and other school leaders who are effective in improving student academic achievement in schools; and
- provide low-income and minority students greater access to effective teachers, principals, and other school leaders.
This is achieved through the recruitment, retention, and retraining of highly effective teachers, the enhancement of parental engagement and the facilitation of high-quality professional learning.
