No Child Left Behind Comes to an End with the Passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
The Senate passed the Every Student Succeeds
Act (ESSA) on December 9, 2015 by a vote of 85-12. The House of Representatives
passed an identical bill on December 2, 2015 by a vote of 359-64. President Obama signed the bill into law on
December 10, 2015.
This new law gives states an even larger role
in holding schools accountable for the success of students like yours who may
have learning and attention issues. Plus, it includes the creation of a new
national literacy center to support kids with dyslexia. Click
