K-12 Education 
The Budget request for elementary and secondary education reflects the restoration of local control in education provided by the Congress in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA reauthorized the ESEA for the first time in 14 years and recognized that the primary responsibility for creating, improving, and sustaining education systems lies with States and local school districts. The Budget builds on these principles by ensuring the Department focuses on returning decision-making power back to States and districts and by giving parents more control over addressing their child’s unique education
needs.
