LDF sent a letter to Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer expressing our opposition to H.J. Res. 57/S.J. Res. 25 disapproving the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) state plans and accountability rule under the Congressional Review Act. The ESSA rule upholds the civil rights legacy of the law by including all students and historically underserved children and youth in accountability decisions, ensuring that meaningful action is taken when schools fail to meet the needs of all students. H.J. Res. 57/S.J. Res. 25, if it became law, would undermine the work and expertise utilized in constructing the ESSA rule.
