The Every Student Succeeds Act (S. 1177) is a proposal approved by a House and Senate conference committee to replace No Child Left Behind. The joint proposal will improve K-12 education by reducing the federal role, restoring local control, and empowering parents. The bill represents a compromise between separate proposals passed by the House and Senate earlier this year.
