[EdWeek] ESSA Explained: Inside the Nation's New K-12 Law

AMTE members may be interested in an upcoming Education Week webinar on Wednesday, May 25, 2016, 2 to 3 p.m. ET. Registration for the Webinar is free, but required for attendance.

From the announcement:

The Every Student Succeeds Act, signed into law in December, is poised to shake up the landscape for states and districts on everything from school accountability to testing, teacher policy, and funding. This latest version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act shifts significant K-12 responsibility away from the federal level. States will set their own academic goals for students, within certain federal boundaries, and have more control over how to turn around low-performing schools. But there are plenty of other changes to come, and regulations under the law are still being hammered out, while members of Congress watch the rollout, many of them looking to keep the U.S. Department of Education on a tight leash. Join members of theEducation Week government and policy staff for a conversation about key aspects of ESSA and what's in store for state and district leaders.
