President Obama signs Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

On December 10th, President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), a bipartisan bill to rewrite the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and replace the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Now that ESSA is law, when does it go into effect? And what happens with NCLB and NCLB waivers?

Watch the Alliance for Excellent Education’s Federal Flash to find out – in under five minutes.

Additionally, the Alliance has created a series of special Federal Flash videos that provide concise but comprehensive analyses of several key areas within the Every Student Succeeds Act. All of these materials and more are available on the Alliance for Excellent Education’s new webpage on the Every Student Succeeds Act at www.all4ed.org/essa.

If you prefer to learn via print rather than video, the Alliance has also created one-page fact sheets in each of the key areas, as well as a side-by-side chart comparing accountability provisions in NCLB, NCLB waivers, and ESSA.
