The U.S. Congress appropriates revenues for elementary and secondary education in the federal government's annual budget in the form of an appropriation. Title I is part of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act and provides money meant to improve the academic performance of students whose families are living below the poverty level, students who are learning English as a second language, students who are not meeting state education standards sanctioned by the federal government, and whether a program school district has two percent or fewer poor children, etc. The data set is collected from the Census Bureau, which includes data from 13,753 school districts in 50 states showing the number of children living in poverty in each school district.
