On February 27, 2015, the Republican bill to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the Student Success Act (H.R. 5), was pulled from consideration on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Dignity in Schools Campaign (DSC) is pleased that the bill was pulled from consideration because it undermines the federal role in education and fails to ensure that federal funds are used to reduce racial and other disparities in education. In particular, H.R. 5 does little to ensure that schools, districts, and states adopt positive discipline practices that keep students in school and on a path to success.
