It’s been an historic week for education. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) passed its conference committee today on a bipartisan basis! No ESEA reauthorization has gone this far since No Child Left Behind in 2001. The bill still has three more hurdles to go (House vote, Senate vote, and the President’s signature) before becoming law, but it is widely expected to make to the finish line before the end of the calendar year! This means BIG changes are in store for the next school year and stability on the horizon for schools for next few (4) years!
