Resource February 4, 2016

These tables map the major early learning provisions included in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA, S.1177, P.L. 114-95) and compares them to the No Child Left Behind Act, and the Every Child Achieves Act – Engrossed in Senate 7/16/15. The document includes the entire text of the newly authorized Preschool Development Grants Program (see Addendum A), but other early learning provisions are illustrated with limited relevant passages.
