From the National School Boards Association (NSBA), which is asking its members to contact members of Congress and urge them to support the ESEA Modernization bill currently currently before the U.S. House of Representatives:
Message to Members of Congress: Vote YES for the “Every Student Succeeds Act”
Please contact your U.S. Representative and urge him or her to vote “Yes” for the Every Student Succeeds Act, which is the House-Senate Conference Committee bill to modernize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The legislation includes specific support for local school board governance and flexibility. You can review NSBA’s letter of support for more information.
Note: The House is expected to vote on the measure tomorrow (Wednesday). WASB will be posting a more detailed analysis of the legislation soon.
