ESSA, Military Students, and Progress

April 9, 2018

“As we celebrate the Month of the Military Child, I am reminded of the numerous stories I have heard about the challenges the sons and daughters of our armed forces face because of one (or both) of their parent’s service,” writes Christi Ham, chairwoman of Military Families for High Standards. Ham also notes that the Military Student Identifier created by ESSA “is designed to help states and districts understand how military-connected students are performing academically.”
