Inside the Every Student Succeeds Act

By Education Week Press — April 26, 2016 1 min read

For the first time in more than a decade - and a half-century after enactment of the country’s main k-12 law - Congress has redefined the federal role in elementary and secondary education. But what does the Every Student Succeeds Act actually mean for schools and the communities they serve? And how does the new law differ from its predecessor, the No Child Left Behind Act?

With such a monumental law set to reshape our education system for years to come, we are excited to announce our new e-book: Inside ESSA: The New Federal K-12 Law. This e-book gathers the best of Education Week reporting from our special report on ESSA and explains what the law will mean for:


  • Accountability and testing
  • Teacher quality
  • Early-childhood education
  • Special education
  • Academic standards, including the Common Core
  • English-language learners
  • Teacher evaluation

We would love to hear what you think about our e-book, so feel free to review and rate it on Amazon.
