The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 10, 2015. The purpose of this act was to replace and update the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) which was signed into law in 2002. Like NCLB, ESSA reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Act of 1965. The purpose of this title is to provide all children with a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.
