The original version of the Every Student Succeeds Act was 1,061 pages. Mercedes Schneider here posts the final version of the act, which is a kinder, gentler 391 pages. Read it if you have time.


In time, I will have informed commentary on this site by some of those who drafted the legislation. Or so I have been promised.


Let me say one more time that I really wish this act were titled the “Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2015.” I hate the “every student succeeds” act. I also hated “no child left behind.” I don’t see why legislation has to have a title that is a bold and totally unrealistic promise.
