UPDATE: On Wednesday, Dec. 9th, one day after publication of this blog, the US Senate reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) in the form of the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA) by a vote of 85-12.
The United States Senate is about to pass the latest iteration of federal overreach in public education, following the House’s approval of the conference report last Wednesday. The latest boondoggle, entitled Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), is the newest version of President Lyndon Johnson’s 1960’s Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The most well known version prior to the ESSA was the 2002 No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
