ESEA/No Child Left Behind Reauthorization: Tell Congress To Do What Is Right For Kids

Reauthorization of ESEA has kicked into high gear.  The Obama Administration has released a blueprint for reauthorization that NEA believes has significant problems and raises serious concerns. 
Of particular concern are:
  • Continued emphasis on standardized testing and failure to allow for multiple measures of student learning
  • Teacher evaluations tied to student test scores
  • Limited and federally-mandated non-research-based turnaround models for struggling schools
  • Funding streams that favor some states and districts over others
  • No mention of parent or family engagement
  • Insufficient efforts to address inequity and gaps in opportunity, tools, and resources 
CONTACT CONGRESS TODAY! Tell Congress what students really need.  Share your views – you are the expert!  Take NEA’s survey and tell us your priorities for ESEA reauthorization.
