This Bill is BAD FOR OUR KIDS. This bill will ALSO eliminate the Elementary and Education Act of 1965, which is the nation's educational law and provides equal opportunity in education.
ESSA is a comprehensive program that covers programs for struggling learners, AP classes, ESL classes, classes for minorities such as Native Americans, Rural Education, Education for the Homeless, School Safety (Gun-Free schools), Monitoring and Compliance and Federal Accountability Programs.
The Bill also abolishes the Nutritional Act of 2012 (No Hungry Kids Act)
The bill has no wording whatsoever protecting special needs kids, no mention of IDEA and FAPE.
