WASHINGTON - Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) passage of the Conference Report to Accompany S. 1177 – Student Success Act, bipartisan legislation that reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.  The legislation reduces unneeded government regulations while still holding our nation’s schools accountable for providing high quality education to all American children:

“Today, I voted to support the Every Student Succeeds Act, which would return the responsibility for our public schools to where it belongs – with the states, local communities, parents and educators.  It gives the people of Illinois the opportunity to design systems that work for our state and provides significant new flexibility for our schools and districts to do what is best for their community and their students.  The Every Student Succeeds Act maintains our country’s important commitment to giving all students access to a great education while also reducing the federal government’s role in education.”


Background:
  • Congressman Kinzinger voted in favor of H.R. 5, the Student Success Act, when it was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 8, 2015.
  • The Conference Report to Accompany S. 1177 – Student Success Act represents a compromise between separate proposals passed by the House and Senate earlier this year.
  • This legislation would reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and replace many of the burdensome provisions of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) while granting states and school districts the freedom to direct federal resources to the programs that best serve their students.
