History of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was signed into law in 1965 by President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who believed that "full educational opportunity" should be "our first national goal." From its inception, ESEA was a civil rights law.
ESEA offered new grants to districts serving low-income students, and funding for special education centers. Additionally, the law provided federal grants to state educational agencies to improve the quality of elementary and secondary education.
