Legislative Priorities for the 115th Congress (2nd Session)

NSBA Advocacy efforts spring from the conviction that excellence in public education must be the nation's top priority. NSBA is committed to ensuring that the local school school is heard in the national education debate where critical decisions are made or influenced. In addition to the specific legislative issues outlined below, NSBA believes Congress must continue its oversight of the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to ensure state and local flexibility in K-12 education.
