Last year, you fought hard to ensure that No Child Left Behind’s replacement would guarantee every student access to a quality education regardless of their zip code. By rallying together, educators, parents, students, and community members were instrumental in passing the Every Student Succeeds Act and ending the era of test and punish.
ESSA represents an opportunity for students and educators, and some big changes. The new school year is just around the corner, and we know you’re wondering what ESSA means for you, and how to implement ESSA where you live.
At getESSAright.org, you’ll find:

You can also get connected to other educators, parents, and state and local association staff who are working tirelessly to get ESSA right in every zip code.
