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 here to read more.
