Summary

Last year, the Obama administration replaced NCLB with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The new law created additional local flexibility, but with that also created additional responsibility for states and districts to ensure all students are given a chance to succeed. How are states implementing the changes? What are the best practices to make sure we can live up to the title of ensuring that we do well by all students—especially those who are frequently left behind? Policy wonks from the Center for American Progress will share real, workable policy recommendations with audience members. In addition, attendees will hear from on the ground practitioners from several states.
