Characteristics of Winning Title II-D Edtech Grant Proposals
Morris, Mary P.; Fenster, Mark J.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Francisco, CA, Apr 8, 2006)
As part of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the U. S. Department of Education determined that state education agencies could submit a consolidated application to obtain funds from many federal programs through a single, consolidated application. Title II-D Enhancing Education through Technology (EdTech), is one of thirteen programs that could be included in the consolidated application in Georgia. Research questions addressed which districts got funded and whether wealth or district enrollment impacted the outcome of the funding decision. Results showed that district enrollment (but not wealth) was associated with the funding decisions. Large school districts were significantly more likely to have their proposals funded. The process designed by the Title II-D competition to promote accountability increased the already overworked district level employee in small districts. (Contains 4 tables.)
