What is the history of federal funding for education?

  • U.S. public school funding was once primarily financed locally but over time it has shifted toward state and federal funding.

  • During the 1920s, less than 1% of public school funding came from the federal government.

  • In the 1930s, states began to play a more active role in school funding.

  • In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson passed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as a part of the "War on Poverty." ESEA emphasizes equal access to education and establishes high standards and accountability. The law authorizes federally funded education programs that are administered by the states.

  • In 1966, Congress created the Migrant Education Program to meet the special educational needs of migrant children.

  • By the late 1970s, states had surpassed local governments in school funding.

  • In 2002, Congress amended ESEA and reauthorized it as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).

  • For 2005-2006 the federal role in public school spending was 9.1%.
