It Is Time Again For The ESEA


The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is now 50 years old and still in place. In fact, with the overall lack of enthusiasm and support by public school educators for participation in the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) measures, it appears to be a good and timely opportunity to review the reauthorization of the ESEA.

Nationwide, NASSP and NAESP have worked togetherĀ for a response to the ESEA reauthorization in Congress. In Virginia, both the Virginia Association of Secondary Principals and the Virginia Association of Elementary School Principals haveĀ  provided input through comments to Senator Lamar Alexandar’s attempts to revive the ESEA.

Follow this link for a copy of the response from the two Virginia administrators’ associations regarding the legislative action.
