President Obama signed Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) into law yesterday.   An advocacy group for students with disabilities remarked that this law “offers a stronger path forward for children and youth with exceptionalities than its predecessor, the No Child Left Behind Act” (CEC, Special Education Today. Dec. 10, 2016 edition).
