April 2015 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the Elementary and
Secondary Educ ation Act (ESEA), the landmark legislation that has
provided the foundation of federal education policy in the United
States. In Presidents, Congress, and the Public Schools, longtime
policy analyst Jack Jennings examines the evolution of federal
education policy and outlines a bold and controversial vision for its
future. Jennings brings an insider’s knowledge to this account,
offering a vivid analysis of federal efforts in the education arena and
revealing some of the factors that shaped their enactment. His rich
descriptions and lively anecdotes provide pointed lessons about the
partisan climate that stymies much federal policy making today.

 

 

 

Mr. Jack Jennings founded the Center on Education Policy in January 1995. From 1967 to 1994, he served as subcommittee staff director and then as a general counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Education and Labor. In these positions, he was involved in nearly every major education debate held at the national level, including the re-authorizations of such important legislation as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Vocational Education Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Higher Education Act, and the National School Lunch Act.

 

Over the years, he has received awards from dozens of organizations, and recently was the recipient of awards for distinguished public service from the American Educational Research Association and from Phi Delta Kappa. Prior toPresidents, Congress, and the Public Schools(Harvard Education Press) Mr. Jennings wrote a book on the politics of national education standards, edited four volumes on federal education policy, and currently writes a blog for theHuffington Post.
