Children Now Examines CA’s ESSA Plan

September 12, 2017

Samantha Tran, senior managing director of education policy at Children Now, wrote that “California’s education plan must be more transparent about student performance.” Her three recommended changes include clearly identifying “if gaps in achievement are closing or are stagnant,” setting “assessment standards so that the system doesn’t mask low performance,” and ensuring “alternative education students are counted and visible in the dashboard for Local Education Agencies.”
