The article focuses on a proposed bill that would allow school districts in the U.S. more flexibility with federal funding. The No Child Left Behind Act provides federal grants, half of which can be used for teacher quality, school technology, and Title one programs for disadvantaged students. Senator Howard P. McKeon proposes that one hundred percent of federal funding to schools should be available to support Title 1 efforts.
