NACSA Comments on Congress’s Progress on Long-Stalled Education Policy Rewrite

Last week, our nation’s lawmakers announced that they have developed a framework for moving forward on a long-stalled rewrite of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). In response, Greg Richmond, president and CEO of the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) issued the following statement:

“NACSA is encouraged by Congress’s latest efforts to convene a conference committee to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), also known as No Child Left Behind.

“No Child Left Behind was passed 14 years ago—and expired in 2007. We can’t wait another year to make needed changes to our nation’s education policy. NACSA stands ready to work with Congress and pass this critical legislation before the end of the year.”

 

The National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA) is an independent voice for effective charter school policy and thoughtful charter authorizing practices that lead to more great public schools. Our research, policy, and consultation work advances excellence and accountability in the charter school sector. With authorizers and other partners, we have built the gold standard for charter school authorizing. Through smart charter school growth, these authorizers will give hundreds of thousands of children an opportunity for a better education each year.
