No Child Left Behind (NCLB) reauthorized former Title VI of the ESEA of 1965 as "Title VI-A: Funding Flexibility." Title VI-A provides formula grants to states and districts and is designed to increase the academic achievement of, and improve the quality of education for, all students. Under Title VI-A, states and districts may use funds in a variety of ways. The driving focus, however, is to increase student academic achievement.
