Disadvantaged students enrolled in the Title I program have made gains on state tests, according to a new study by the Center on Education Policy. The study showed that the students in the federal poverty education program scored higher on reading and math tests in 2009 than they did in 2002. In some states, Title I students also are narrowing the achievement gap between their peers. While the program has been criticized, supporters of Title I say the study shows the program is working.
