CAP Ed Expert Discusses Role as Independent Peer Reviewer

September 24, 2017

Scott Sargrad, managing director of the K-12 Education Policy team at the Center for American Progress, writes about his participation in Bellwether and the Collaborative’s independent peer review, and offered guidance for New Hampshire’s education leaders as they finalize their ESSA accountability plans. Sargrad says the states “have an important opportunity to lay out their vision for educating all students,” which “starts with their plan for how they will hold schools and districts accountable, and how they will use that system to drive student learning.” Sargrad highlights that ESSA also gives states the opportunity to “improve not only how they hold schools and districts accountable for success, but also improve their whole education system for all students.”
