  • In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson passed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act(ESEA) as a part of the "War on Poverty."

The #1 priority of this law isequal access to high quality education, high standards, and accountability.

  • The law providesfederally funds to education programs that improve learning opportunities for children at risk.

In 2002, Congress amended ESEA and passed it as a new law, the No Child Left Behind Act.

In 2012, Virginia, along with many other states, was allowed to change how the law is enacted to provide greater flexibility, while not compromising accountability.
