Title II: Preparing, Training & Recruiting High Quality Teachers & Principals
Title II provides federal funding to states and districts for activities that strengthen instructional leadership and teacher quality in all schools, especially those with a high proportion of children in poverty.

Because communities nationwide face such a variety of needs when it comes to teacher quality, the law gives schools and districts flexibility in how the money is spent. It also holds them accountable for the proper and effective use of the funds.
Title II includes four funding streams to raise student achievement through effective instruction and school leadership:
