Dignity in Schools Campaign Opposition Letter to Final ESEA Bill

On November 30, 2015 Congress released the final agreement to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)- the Every Student Suceeds Act. As a coalition committed to advancing the human and civil rights of all students, we do not support this final agreement because it diminishes the civil rights protections of the original ESEA of 1965 by cutting back on the law’s federal oversight and accountability provisions.
