These two online field trips are especially important because each is part of the United States Department of Education: the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the Transforming Teaching and Learning site.

The headers are well-organized, including information related to education laws, information related to student loan programs, and other pertinant knowledge for educators, students, and parents. Especially relevant are the pages that are about FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Act), and the Higher Education Act.

In addition to the Department of Education’s No Child Left Behind Act web pages, the NCLBA hearing reports….....
