The Future of ESSA Under the Trump Administration (Video)

| No comments

Congress recently struck down new accountability rules, written by the Obama administration, that were part of the Every Students Succeed Act. ESSA, which was signed into law in December of 2015, replaces the No Child Left Behind Act. It takes full effect in the 2017-18 school year.

What do these changes in federal regulations mean for schools and school leaders? Alyson Klein of Education Week and Noelle Ellerson Ng of AASA, The School Superintendents Association, appeared on Facebook Live to discuss these changes and the future of education policy under President Donald Trump and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy Devos.

This conversation took place days before the administration released new guidelines for states crafting their ESSA plans, which give even more insight into the direction of federal education policy.
