Senate Approves Every Child Achieves Act of 2015

The American Library Association (ALA) shared the news that the U.S. Senate voted to reauthorize and amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), now the Every Child Achieves Act of 2015 (S.1177). This legislation will help keep school libraries open in every state by allowing school districts to use federal funds to develop and foster school library programs. Additionally, it gives states more flexibility in developing accountability systems, deciding the weight of federally required tests, choosing student and school performance measures, and implementing teacher evaluation systems, among other provisions.

“Strong and effective school library programs with professional librarians provide students with invaluable access to support, resources and tools. This makes a big difference for students who do not have access to high-speed Internet or books at home. This makes a big difference in student success,” says Sari Feldman, ALA president.

For more information, read the press release.
