ESSA, Funding, and Transparency

April 12, 2018

Lauren Poteat reports for the Atlanta Voice that ESSA requires the nation’s public schools “to give fully-detailed reports on how and where they spend institutional funding.” This requirement begins in December 2019, and “supporters of the rule, including the NAACP, believe it will help to encourage greater educational equity, particularly among schools serving large numbers of Black and Hispanic students in low-income neighborhoods.”
