ESEA Flexibility Request Overview

Governor Jan Brewer and Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal have announced that the U.S. Department of Education has granted Arizona’s application for relief from some of the most burdensome federal education regulations. The approved Flexibility Request means Arizona is no longer subject to many onerous elements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
