Image for Education Week: ESSA on the Runway

Apr 13, 2018

As educators across the country prepare for the first school year under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Education Week has provided a Special Report that dives deep into the specifics of ESSA implementation. According to the editors, “this report takes a multifaceted look at just how ready those states, districts, and schools are to bringing ESSA's changes in for a successful landing when the law goes into full effect for the 2018-19 school year.”

Some of the issues that the report tackles include:

  • How the law is moving from policy to practice
  • Satisfying ESSA’s evidence-based requirements
  • ESSA’s pressure for states to hire high-quality teachers
  • Making school data transparent and accessible
  • Struggles for ESSA control between state and local officials
