Every Student Succeeds Act

In 1965, Congress enacted the nation's education law, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), to address the inequality of educational opportunity for underprivileged children. This landmark legislation provided resources to help ensure that disadvantaged students had access to quality education.

Over the years, the Act was amended and renamed. The last revision is known as the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

On December 10, 2015, President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) that reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA). [The previous version of ESEA, the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, was enacted in 2002.]

For the text of the ESSA as signed on December 10, 2015 - click here to download - 391 pdf pages.

For the full text of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the ESSA, click here to download - 443 pdf pages (as amended, enacted July 31, 2018).
