Former Governor Jack Markell Highlights Opportunity under ESSA

July 25, 2017

Former Delaware Gov. Jack Markell authored an opinion piece on states’ opportunities under ESSA. He argued “states have a real opportunity to think critically about the ways they’re supporting schools,” and how “to make improvements to current policies and practices.” Markell also highlighted the review efforts of over 30 bipartisan education experts on submitted state plans. He stated that the “feedback can be helpful to education advocates and policymakers in the 17 states that submitted plans, and it’s also a resource for the 34 states that have yet to submit state plans under the education law.”
