Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965

Title III is the third section of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). The law was renamed and amended under President George W. Bush's administration as the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB). President Barack Obama's administration has sought reauthorization of the ESEA under its original title, but with improved assessment procedures and higher but more flexible standards. This entry describes ESEA's third section, Title III, Language Instruction for Limited English Proficient and Immigrant Students. Title III grants funds to the public schools of the U.S. states, territories, and Indian tribes to provide English language instruction to limited English proficient students. The entry gives an overview of Title III and then explains its three fundamental purposes.
