NEA and nine other leading education groups kicked off a digital ad campaign this week urging Congress to finish rewriting ESEA and focus on opportunity for all students, no matter their zip code.
“If Congress is serious about every child’s bright future, let’s get serious about putting kids first,” said NEA president Lily Eskelsen García. “Now is the time to finish the job and deliver a bipartisan education bill to the president’s desk right away. Students can’t afford to live another year under the failed No Child Left Behind law.”
Agreement on a final bill is likely to be announced by before Thanksgiving — Congress is hearing the urgency from educators!
