See The 74’s complete coverage of the Every Student Succeeds Act.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law in December 2015, a bipartisan proposal the replaced No Child Left Behind. The passage of ESSA turned control of the country’s K-12 education system back over to the states, giving local legislatures more flexibility surrounding decisions about standards, assessments, and other accountability measures.
Since Congress passed ESSA, states have been busy writing their own accountability plans, which have to be submitted for approval from the federal Department of Education no later than this September. Our new interactive map, powered by the Collaborative for Student Success, provides updates on where states are in that process, and also shares relevant news coverage on how states have constructed their plans and engaged parents, educators, and stakeholders in the drafting process.
