NGA’s stance on implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was mentioned in Education Week‘s Politics K-12 blog.
The post says:
“National Governors Association: The department should use a light touch in regulating on ESSA, and not go further than Congress intended. ‘Guidance should be the primary tool the federal government uses to inform state efforts to implement ESSA.’ Governors should be consulted on any big moves since they are, after all, in charge of their state K-12 systems. Plus, the department should allow for flexible timelines, including early implementation of the new law.”
