CROSS CUTTING ISSUES
ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act)
Title 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of
1965 was revised and reauthorized by Congress in January 2002 as
part of the law called "No Child Left Behind." In the words of the
Act, it is intended to "close the achievement gap between disadvantaged
and minority students and their peers" through "stronger accountability
for results, increased flexibility and local control, expanded
options for parents, and an emphasis on teaching methods that have
been proven to work." This legislation has the potential to affect
most areas of education.
The ESEA is related to many of the topics in the Master Plan; the links below lead to pages on this site that give more information in selected areas.
