The new law, known as the Every Student Succeeds Act, changes much about the federal government’s role in education, largely by scaling back Washington’s influence.
My goodness this is some good news! I did not even know this was on the table. I guess I’m a bit jaded of reading education news from Washington. Maybe I better get back into it if stuff like this is happening! This is huge. My guess is change will be slowwww as always. We’ll still be judged by the Smarter Balanced. But at least it’s a ray of hope, a slant of sunshine that we can soon focus on the needs of the future citizens in our classrooms and not strategize 24/7 on how to hurdle the Common Core. For now though, that’s what 2-12 will have to continue to do until someone tells me otherwise. Thanks!
