    Mathematics teachers face daily challenges in using scarce resources to address the needs of students, particularly those who are disadvantaged. Federal education resources can be used to support your efforts to improve learning. This article explains how Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which at over $7 billion is the largest federal investment in K–12 education, can support your work. We hope that you will read this article and begin a discussion with principals and administrators about how Title I resources can be used to improve mathematics teaching and learning in your school and district.
