A Quality Teacher in Every Classroom

Enhancing Education Through Technology 18


Purpose of the Program

The primary goal of this program is to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. The program also seeks to: (1) ensure that every student is technologically literate by the end of the eighth grade; and (2) establish research-based instructional methods through the effective integration of technology, professional development for teachers, and curriculum development.

New Program Improvements and Resources

The No Child Left Behind Act establishes this program by consolidating several programs into a single State formula-grant program. This change will help improve children’s education by focusing the program on improving student achievement and focusing funds on the poorest schools.

Last year, President Bush signed legislation that provides $700 million for this program in FY-02. This year, President Bush’s budget proposes sustaining this commitment in FY-03.
