VIDEO DISCUSSION: Every Student Succeeds Act is a major education law setting U.S. public schools on a new course of accountability

President Obama signed a new education law that ends "No Child Left Behind" created by former president, George Bush 15 years ago. The new law, Every Student Succeeds Act, has repealed and replaced No Child Left Behind. Instead of structured standardized tests that report national averages of math and reading scores, the new law is allowing states to develop and determine their own methods for judging schools quality, as well as, timelines and goals pertaining to academic progress. The federal Department of Education must approve each state's plan regarding education.
