Based on the proceedings of a national conference titled "Implementation of the Title I Program: Implications for Improving Schools' Capacity for Achieving Success," this publication is intended to bring critical attention to the issues that will improve the learning of economically disadvantaged students in urban and rural schools. Chapters provide an overview of the research base and an analysis of the current state of education practice. Each chapter contains specific proposals for policy development and research and development agendas. The chapters are: (1) "Financing Title I: Meeting the Twin Goals of Effective Resource Targeting and Beneficial Program Interventions" (Martin Orland and Stephanie Stullich); (2) "Educational Practices and Policies that Promote Achievement" (Margaret C. Wang, Geneva D. Haertel, and Herbert J. Walberg); (3) "Redesigning the Federal Compensatory Education Program: Lessons from the Implementation of Title I Schoolwide Projects" (Kenneth K. Wong, Gail L. Sunderman, and Jaekyung Lee); (4) "Sustaining State Reform through Research and Recognition" (Gerald L. Richardson); (5) "Reading Achievement, Reading Instruction, and Title I Evaluation" (Richard L. Venezky); (6) "English-Language Learners and Title I Schoolwide Programs" (Diane August); (7) "Meeting Student Diversity Needs in Poor, Rural Schools: Ideal Practices and Political Realities" (Barbara L. McCombs and Bill Bansberg); and (8) "Epilogue: A Summary of Recommendations" (Margaret C. Wang and Kenneth K. Wong). Each chapter contains references. (Contains 23 tables.) (SLD)
