ESEA Reauthorized – FINALLY!

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), first created under President Lyndon Johnson in 1965, was the first major federal effort to provide funding and policy guidance to states to address the education needs of low-income and minority children and support the intent of Brown v. Board of Education. Today, The Every Child Succeeds Act, the first reauthorization of ESEA since the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 will be signed into law.
