Smithson, John – State Education Standard, 2017
A standards-based model of reform has dominated public education for 30 years. Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), it will continue to dominate education policy. Is that model working?

Hull, Robert; Long, Don – State Education Standard, 2017
While much about the direction of federal education policy and regulation is murky, one thing remains clear.

What exactly does this shift mean for state boards of…

Mitchel, Ashley LiBetti; Aldeman, Chad – State Education Standard, 2017
In early 2017, Congress rescinded two education regulations passed late in the Obama administration. The first regulation, which attempted to define and implement the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), received most of attention since states were busy planning how to implement the new law in the 2017-2018 school year.

This year's submission of consolidated state plans for implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) revealed two things: New ideas made it to the table, and many people--including those who had not before engaged in education policy conversations--contributed to the process.
