Principals Take Action for ESEA

Thank you to everyone who took action by sending messages to their senators through the Principal’s Legislative Action Center in support of a full reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). Your emails and tweets to senators’ offices let Capitol Hill know that principals have been waiting long enough for a new ESEA. Messages sent expressed support and concern for several different provisions, as expressed in the joint comments previously sent to Chairman Alexander and Ranking Member Murray by NASSP, the National Association of Elementary School Principals, and the American Federation of School Administrators.

The Senate passed their version of the reauthorization, the Every Child Achieves Act (S. 1177) on July 16, 2015 with wide bipartisan support in an 81-17 vote. The vote follows the passage of the House version, the Student Success Act (H.R. 5) on July 8th. Advocates are anticipating a Conference Committee to be formed to combine the two bills this fall.

Thanks again to all of the members who took action! Because of the 220 NASSP members listed below, a total of 456 email messages were sent to Capitol Hill through the Principal’s Legislative Action Center.
