The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was first passed by Congress in 1965 and represents a sweeping change in the federal government’s role in local public education. The law was originally authorized through 1970; however, the government has reauthorized the act every five years since its enactment. The current reauthorization of ESEA is the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001.
