Video: Why ESSA Matters
For 14 long years, students and educators have lived under the deeply flawed No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) returns decision making for our nation’s education back where it belongs – in the hands of local educators, parents, and communities – while keeping the focus on students most in need.
Educators (teachers, paraeducators, education support professionals, librarians, and specialized staff), parents, community organizations, and local leaders all have a role in making sure the Every Student Succeeds Act lives up to its promise. Be a part of it!
