Parents and ESEA

Parental involvement is a critical component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which used to be called the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), a federal law affecting K-12 education. ESEA provides funding for extra help for students, and holds schools accountable for outcomes. Please visit the links below for more information.

How are Minnesota schools performing?

NCLB says that all public schools have to meet some basic standards. If your child’s school is not meeting those standards after two years, your child may be able to receive two services, supplemental educational services (SES) and school choice.

NCLB also says that public school teachers need to be highly qualified.
