Dear Colleagues, ...
- Last year, Congress passed a bipartisan education bill that replaced the failed policies of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The new law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), returns a great deal of control to states and school districts, and it eliminates federally-mandated one-size-fits-all interventions for struggling schools. Unlike NCLB, the ESSA empowers school districts to identify and respond to the unique needs of their students and communities.
