Replacing 'No Child Left Behind': State ed. department to host meeting on new federal education legislation
BEMIDJI—Minnesota Department of Education staff will host a meeting Thursday to discuss state-level implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act, federal education legislation that replaces the Bush-era No Child Left Behind act.
The meeting is designed to educate the general public about the new legislation and to collect input on the state's implementation of it. All states are required to submit a plan to the U.S. Department of Education for the 2017-18 school year, and the meeting at Bemidji High School is one of several to be held throughout Minnesota.
