LDA has spent significant time discussing the major issues surfacing in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA, currently known as No Child Left Behind). The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee Chairman, Lamar Alexander (R-TN), issued a draft bill which will be considered in the HELP Committee in mid-April. The House Education and Workforce Committee passed its ESEA bill, which is significantly different than the Alexander draft bill, in late February. That bill is awaiting final action in the House of Representatives.
