Chiefs for Change Highlights Opportunities under ESSA

April 4, 2017

In The 74 Million, Chiefs for Change’s Anne Hyslop highlights the opportunity for states to be innovative in their use of federal funds. Emphasizing that there is bipartisan support for the flexibility in ESSA, she notes that, “flexibility gives states an opportunity to be thoughtful about how to encourage proven interventions among districts, while respecting that successful implementation requires local buy-in and community support.” Hyslop continues, “Flexibility to use Title funds to support innovative, proven practices and bolster local priorities — and cheering on states that do so — is a conversation everyone can get behind.”
