Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Reauthorization
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) sanctions most federal elementary and secondary education programs. The most current iteration of ESEA is the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, which was passed by Congress in December 2001.
ESEA has been due for reauthorization since 2007. NASSP remains committed to supporting a federal law that will provide important guidance to states and districts to improve our nation’s education system, and strengthen or improve areas of ESEA that have been problematic under NCLB.
