ESSA was signed into law in December 2015, as a bipartisan re-authorization of the national education law, replacing the previous No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) from 2002. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the law’s major tenets, and explore how ESSA encourages increased collaboration in local communities so that parents, schools, and community organizations can work together to ensure equitable education for all children. Featured speakers include Marisa Goldstein, Research and Policy Associate, Aspen Institute Education & Society Program; Georgia Thompson, Vice President, Programs and Affiliate Network and Cemeré James, Vice President of Policy, National Black Child Development Institute.
