Those who were responsible for crafting essa ESSA sought to shift the focus from federal accountability and oversight to more local and state-based control; under President Obama’s waiver program, CCSSI and RTT initiatives, the direction of education policy was one on increased federal control over education. An oft-quoted Wall Street Journal editorial claimed that ESSA would represented, “the largest devolution of federal control to the states in a quarter-century.” Chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee John Kline further billed ESSA as a rejection of the “Washington-knows-best approach to education” and touted ESSA as “the kind of responsible education reforms the American people want and deserve.” While the rhetoric

To maintain the uniformity of the NIMS it followed five components:
In 1947, a Commission on Civil Rights appointed by Truman issued a report, To Secure These Rights, calling on the federal government to end segregation and guarantee equal treatment in housing, employment, education, and criminal justice. The Truman administration, calling the report an American charter of human freedom, hoped to deflect the Cold War criticisms that American racial relations violated democracy human rights. Though Truman soon presented a comprehensive civil rights program to Congress asking for a federal civil rights commission, anti lynching and anti poll tax laws for equal access in jobs and education, Congress rejected it. But in the summer of 1948, Truman desegregated the military, and the military became the first large integrated institution in American history. Truman went on to help construct the most progressive Democratic platform in history for the 1948 elections, which included a robust civil rights

Former U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan described a “new normal,” a situation in which schools would have to do more with less. Blended leaning is playing a vital role in this regard, as school operators begin to rethink the structure and delivery of education in a context of public funding reality (Horn & Staker, 2011).

In this article “Taking The Common Ground Beyond Cultural Identity” written by Kenneth A. Bruffee is an American Writing Center administrator and a professor emeritus in the department of English at Brooklyn College. He talks about the present patterns in multicultural liberal instruction. He expresses that the first undertaking of multicultural training, recognizing contrasts and making social "groupings," has missed the mark as the contrasts in the middle of "them" and "us" turn out to be more evident in advanced education. He proposes that understudies should now "figure out how to perceive and attest our honest to goodness shared characteristic”. Bruffee proposes that understudies ought to rather take in more about their own characters
The bill ordered that a new federal justice department be created to monitor civil rights. The Commission on Civil Rights was to be required to advise and send reports to congress, as well as the president, on various issues involving acts of discrimination or inequality. The Commission on Civil Rights was originally planned to be disbanded after two years, but it still operates today. The Commission has an advisory committee in each state.

In 1988, two years after the Bethel School District v Fraser case, another public school petitioned the United States Supreme Court regarding an action of censorship decided by the school against the school student’s journal. Known as Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier , this case will be analyzed by the US Supreme Court justices, mostly, in reference to the Bethel School District v Fraser case. The precedent of Bethel School District v Fraser case’s ruling has heavily weighted on Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier case in a sense that, once again, the Court has decided to overturn a decision of a Court of Appeals, and pronounced a verdict in favor of the School District. In fine, the United States Supreme Court will rule that a school has a censorship power, which, it could fully and reasonably exercise against the freedom
When George W. Bush was proposing to congress why the Department of Homeland Security needed to formally become a government department he explained that, “The President proposes to create a new Department of Homeland Security, the most significant transformation of the U.S. government in over half-century by largely transforming and realigning the current confusing patchwork of government activities into a single department whose primary mission is to protect our homeland. The creation of a Department of Homeland Security is one more key step in the President’s national strategy for homeland security” (Bush “The Department” 1). In 2002 the Department of Homeland Security formally became a department of government after congress passed the Homeland Security Act (Homeland Security – Creation of the department of Homeland Security). The Homeland Security Act of 2002 states that, “the primary mission of the Department is to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce the vulnerability of the United States to terrorism, and to minimize the damage, and assist in the recovery, from terrorist attacks that do occur

The Americans with Disability Act (ADA), was passed by Congress in 1990. Our country just recently celebrated the ADA’s 25th anniversary, commemorating the progression that our nation has made towards ensuring equality for those with disabilities. Though many strides have been taken, we still have quite a long way to go, namely in the aspects of transportation and employment. Over the last 25 years, our society progressed towards being more accessible towards all; ADA standards were implemented across the nation, however, there was resistance.
