A 2013 Federal Education Policy Update (Archived Webinar)

February 26, 2013

The Alliance for Excellent Education held a webinar that provided an update on what’s happening with education policy in Washington, DC in 2013, as well as what’s likely to get done and what’s likely to linger throughout the year.

Shortly after the new year arrived, a new Congress convened in the nation’s capital. With new faces on key congressional committees, and some familiar faces in new positions, will 2013 bring with it real advancement in federal education policy? Members of the Alliance’s federal advocacy staff answered this question and provided other federal education policy updates, including

  • an analysis of the President Obama’s State of the Union address;
  • a discussion of the federal budget process, including an update on the across-the-board cuts, formally known as “sequestration”;
  • a status update on the U.S. Department of Education’s waivers from key provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act; and
  • the latest on the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act
