Students with Disabilities: A Pocket Guide. Reauthorizing ESEA: Making Research Relevant
American Institutes for Research
First introduced in 1965, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) has evolved over nearly five decades, emphasizing education reform priorities that mirror the changing national education policy conversation. The most recent iteration of ESEA, also known as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), was enacted in 2001. It emphasized improving outcomes for all students regardless of their race, native language, or disability, with a focus on accountability for schools and districts. A decade later, ESEA is again due for reauthorization. This Pocket Guide will assist policymakers and educators as they consider changes to this law in relation to improving results for students with disabilities (SWDs).

Reauthorizing ESEA: Making Research Relevant" (ED530794).]
