Welcome to Lunchtime LEVinars, free, interactive, online webinars on important and timely issues hosted by the League of Education Voters (LEV). These lunchtime webinars are designed to share information and build knowledge about the issues at the core of LEV’s policy priorities.
LEV will host each 30-minute webinar, which will include a 15–20 minute presentation by an expert from the field and 10 minutes of Q&A. Each webinar will be recorded and archived on our website.

The new Every Student Succeeds Act, which takes full effect in the 2017-18 school year, rolls back much of the federal government’s big footprint in education policy, on everything from testing and teacher quality to low-performing schools. And it gives new leeway to states in calling the shots.
That’s a big change from the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), which ESSA replaced and updated.
In this two-part LEVinar series, Tukwila School Board Member (and LEV June Activist of the Month) Mary Fertakis answers your questions on how ESSA will affect education in Washington state and what it could do for civil rights and equity. Moderated by our State Field Director, Kelly Munn.
