Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) led a discussion with education officials from Danbury Public Schools regarding the implementation of ESSA. “There is a lot more latitude around how you test now, you have to build in other measurements of what a good school is. You determine the measurements, what your expectations are and what the turnaround strategies are,” Murphy explained. Education officials expressed concern over the assessments and the proficiency gap.
