ESEA Reauthorization: TC's President Fuhrman and Professors Ancess, Morrell, and Nadelstern Weigh In

This spring, Congress will decide whether to reauthorize the 1965 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), known since 2002 as No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The law has been both hailed as a major step toward ensuring that all students succeed, and criticized for an undue emphasis on testing that has narrowed curriculum and penalized schools in poverty. As Congress debates these and related issues in an NCLB rewrite, the following TC experts shared their perspectives:

Literacy, Equity, Capacity: Reauthorize an ESEA that Supports Those Goals
Ernest Morrell, Macy Professor of Education and Director, Institute for Urban and Minority Education (IUME)

New York Times Letter to the Editor: ESEA Reauthorization Should Consider New Ways to Measure Student Progress
Susan Fuhrman, President, Teachers College
Revised ESEA Law Should Restore Control to States and Localities
Jacqueline Ancess, Co-Director, National Center for Restructuring Education, Schools, and Teaching (NCREST)
