Our nation’s education system is due for a major overhaul, and we are on the verge of making it happen.

Today, the House will take up the Every Student Succeeds Act, which isn’t just a bill, but rather a final conference report negotiated by the House and Senate through regular order.

It’s another example of how we can find common ground without compromising our principles. In this case, those principles are: reducing the federal role in K-12 education; restoring local control; and empowering parents.

  • “The bill marks a roll back of federal power” (National Journal)
  • “Will free students and schools from the grip of crude directives” (American Enterprise Institute)
  • “The largest devolution of federal control to the states in a quarter-century” (The Wall Street Journal)
  • Removes the one size fits all federal system” (KEYC-TV)
  • Cuts down on the number of education programs” (POLITICO)
  • “Education secretary could no longer push for academic standards like the Common Core” (NPR)
  • “A dismantling of the federal accountability system” (The Washington Post)
  • States will now get to design their own systems to measure how schools perform” (BuzzFeed)
  • End waivers the Obama administration has granted to more than 40 states” (Associated Press)
  • “Will go to great lengths to tie the hands of the secretary of the Department of Education” (Deseret News)
  • At its core is designed to rein in federal control and again provide states with more freedom” (Asbury Park Press)

By replacing No Child Left Behind with common-sense, conservative reforms, we’re making sure parents will have more of a say and students will have more chances to excel.
