Education Week’s Alyson Klein takes a look at the four takeaways from the first state plans to receive approvals from the U.S. Dept. of Education for their ESSA plans. These include:
- States didn’t make big revisions to areas flagged by the department;
- States fixed areas where the department pushed the most;
- Some state plans aren’t as ambitious as some experts would have liked; and
- Some states need to work out details, even though their plans have been approved.
