Heralded as a Christmas miracle, the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) in December 2015 marked a turning point in federal education policy. The latest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, ESSA replaced the much-maligned No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and returned significant control over education back to the states.
Join AEI as Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Chairman Lamar Alexander, one of the law’s chief architects, discusses ESSA and American education. Following his remarks, an expert panel will deliberate on the new law and what it means for states, families, and students.
