Tell your U.S. senators to vote YES on the Every Student Succeeds Act

On December 2, the U.S. House of Representatives took the first step in reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) — also known as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) — by passing a new federal education bill.

Now it is the U.S. Senate’s turn to approve this new proposal — called the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

The Senate is expected to vote on the ESSA bill Tuesday, December 8.

Please encourage your U.S. senators to vote YES on the Every Student Succeeds Act!
