Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) submitted comments on the Dept. of Education’s proposed accountability rules under ESSA. According to Politico Pro, Murray and Scott agree with certain provisions, like the “requirement that states come up with concrete evaluations or scores for schools,” but want to see changes like “including the timeline for states to get their new accountability systems up and running, transportation for students in foster care, calculating graduation rates, n-sizes, resource equity and more.” (Subscription only)
