On Wednesday, December 16, 2015 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) is hosting a Special Edition webinar to examine and discuss the new federal K-12 education law replacing No Child Left Behind, The Every Student Succeeds Act
(ESSA), and how it supports personalized learning.
Yesterday, President Obama made history by signing The Every Student Succeeds Act into law which reauthorizes and updates the nation's guiding federal education policy, known also as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
In a statement released yesterday, iNACOL applauded President Obama and the United States Congress for their historic, bipartisan effort to improve federal k-12 education law for all students.
