Congress Must Ensure a Reauthorized #ESEA Protects Children and Civil Rights.

  • Accountability for student outcomes, especially subgroup performance, is not strong enough in the bill. State accountability systems must be required to identify, intervene in, and support schools when all students or groups of students are behind or are not making academic progress.

  • Additional data about groups of students are needed to help us understand how all of our students are doing and what their needs might be.

  • The equitable distribution of critical educational resources is foundational to ensuring equal educational opportunity. The bill does not require action to address reported disparities.

  • The Secretary of Education’s role is overly limited in the bill, which will undermine the implementation, oversight and enforcement of the law.
