WASHINGTON (CNS) — When President Barack Obama signed the sweeping bipartisan legislation Every Student Succeeds Act Dec. 10, he described it as a “Christmas miracle.”
“This is an early Christmas present. After more than 10 years, members of Congress from both parties have come together to revise our national education law,” he said.
The other part of the miracle might be that the legislation — which aims to do away with excessive school testing and give states and local governments more control of schools by freeing them from federal mandates — also provides something for Catholic school students.
