Search The essence of ESSA: More control at the district level?

Both rhetorically and substantively, the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA) served as a rebuke to the now-unpopular policies pursued by both the Bush and Obama administrations (American National Election Survey, 2018; Edgerton, 2019). Not only did it reduce the discretion of the secretary of education but also it allowed states greater flexibility in meeting the demands of standards-based accountability.

New Standards and Old Divides: Policy attitudes about college- and career-ready standards for students with disabilities

Background/Context: The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, 2004) requires that all students with disabilities (SWD) receive a free, appropriate public education designed to meet their unique needs to prepare them for post-school education and employment (American Psychological Association, 2018). In the past two decades, momentum has grown for a supplementary idea: that schools be held accountable for SWD achieving grade-level standards. Thus standards-based reform for SWD is often caught between ideals of standardization and principles of differentiation.

New! Research Brief on Massachusetts' Implementation of Standards

How are districts in different states implementing college- and career-readiness (CCR) standards? The Center on Standards, Alignment, Instruction, and Learning (C-SAIL), has partnered with California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Texas to find out. In a new brief, we focus on implementation in six Massachusetts districts.
