The article discusses legislative outlook for U.S. education during the second term of U.S. President Barack Obama, particularly in terms of policy and funding. It states that the president was able to rewrite K-12 policy via a combination of regulatory reform, financial carrots, and the grant of unprecedented waiver plan to interested states. It says that the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) is not the top priority in the education policy agenda of the 113th Congress.
