CEA President Sheila Cohen discussed the Senate’s reauthorization of ESEA recently with Senator Chris Murphy in Washington D.C. Above Cohen and Vice President Jeff Leake speak with Murphy (center) during his visit to a past CEA Summer Leadership Conference.
The U.S. Senate is currently debating federal education policy that will impact the future of teaching and learning for years to come. Educators know firsthand how important it is that a new version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) allows time for students to learn and ensures educational opportunity for every child.
That’s why CEA leaders and members have been communicating with their senators and urging support for a “dashboard” of core indicators that will help states and districts identify and begin to close opportunity and resource gaps. CEA members have emphasized that all students must have access to a well-rounded education, no matter where they live.
