Listening session with San Antonio educators
At the end of last year, Congress passed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA reauthorizes the 50-year-old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), our country’s national education law. Today I hosted a listening session with San Antonio superintendents and local education stakeholders about ESSA and how the legislation will affect our city’s schools. I’m grateful to U.S. Department of Education Special Advisor Ruthanne Buck for coming to San Antonio for the event, providing useful insights, and answering folks’ questions.
