This week, President Obama signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act, a bipartisan bill to revise and replace No Child Left Behind.

This new law helps states and districts reduce unnecessary standardized tests, gets rid of one-size-fits-all mandates on our schools, ensures that our education system will prepare every child to graduate from high school ready for college and careers, and provides more children access to high-quality state preschool programs.

The First Lady also shared why college is so important!



The President and the First Lady also hosted a Hannukah reception, with the Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
