What You Can Do

ESEA Toolkit

Every student has the right to a great public school—a school that educates the whole child, involves the whole family, and engages the entire community.

Since January 2002, educators have lived with the flawed No Child Left Behind (NCLB), the law previously known as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). NCLB deviated sharply from the original intent of the law: to give all students equal access to educational opportunity. ESEA/NCLB is now before Congress to be renewed. This is our opportunity to correct NCLB’s failures and move closer to great public schools for every student.
