Tell the Senate - DO NOT Overturn ESSA Regulations!!!!!!!!!
The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to overturn the U.S. Department of Education's regulation implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act's (ESSA) core requirement that schools be held accountable for the performance of historically marginalized students, including students with disabilities. Congress has never before voted to overturn an education regulation. The Department issued this regulation after the public, including both educators and students and their families, filed over 21,000 comments. The U.S. Senate will vote soon on whether to follow the House and overturn the regulation. Please WRITE YOUR SENATORS and ask them to vote "No" on House Joint Resolution 57 that would overturn the ESSA accountability regulation and to protect the rights of marginalized students, including students with disabilities.
The ESSA provides states with flexibility in how they identify schools where students are struggling, how they will hold those schools accountable, and how the states will support those schools. But the ESSA also provides strong "guardrails," to ensure that schools actually help students, including students with disabilities, learn and achieve proficiency. The ESSA also requires states to issue a "report card" for every public school in the state, so that parents can make informed decisions about where their children will attend school.
WRITE YOUR SENATORS! The Senate will vote on whether to overturn the ESSA accountability regulation soon - perhaps as soon as next week.
WRITE YOUR SENATORS and tell them to vote "No" on House Joint Resolution 57!
