The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)

Member Rachelle Moore testifies before Congress

VICTORY! Educators speak, senators listen, ESEA rewrite passes by huge margin

The Senate voted 81-17 on July 16 to pass the bipartisan, NEA-supported Every Child Achieves Act (S. 1177). The victory is a product of unprecedented member engagement that included 216,000 emails and 15,000 phone calls to Congress; 32,000 tweets; 26,000 petition signers; 367,000 views of; and nearly 2,000 face-to-face meetings with members of Congress and key staff by state affiliate leaders, NEA officers and board members, and lobbyists.
