Committee resources on the Every Student Succeeds Act

The MLC Education Committee is working to keep its members and all state legislators in the Midwest up to date on the impact and implementation of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act — a 2015 federal law that makes major changes in the state-federal relationship on education policy. If you have questions about the ESSA, please contact Tim Anderson, CSG Midwest staff liaison to the committee.
