Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)


On December 10, 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) officially became the main federal law supporting K12 public education in the United States. Previously known as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the law was supposed to have been reauthorized in 2007. ESSA reaffirms the importance of local governance, protects federal investments for Title I for disadvantaged students, and prevents the diversion of public tax dollars for private use.
