House to Vote on ESEA Re-authorization This Week

 

The House of Representatives will vote this week on The Student Success Act (H.R. 5) to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act – No Child Left Behind (ESEA-NCLB). The time is now for Congress to hear your voice, Take Action!

 

Congress needs to hear that PTA supports:

  • Safeguarding all family engagement provisions, modeled – in part – from the Family Engagement in Education Act.

  • Adequate authorization levels to support critically important programs.

  • The exclusion of any provision that would create or lead to a private school voucher, including Title I portability funding.  

  • Providing access to well-rounded education curricula for all students.

  • Safeguarding and improving equity protections and dedicated funding streams for disadvantaged populations.

  • Developing ambitious, yet appropriate, state-driven accountability systems with growth and performance goals to replace Adequate Yearly Progress.

  • Guaranteeing that all students receive quality instruction from well-prepared teachers and pupil support personnel.

  • Improving state longitudinal data systems and sharing of student data. 

 

Please take a moment to contact your Representative today and tell him or her to protect family engagement provisions in ESEA.
