September 26, 2017

FutureEd, an independent think tank at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, released a new report—“Who’s In: Chronic Absenteeism Under ESSA”—which provides a comprehensive review of the provisions in all 51 state ESSA plans, as well as the results of an analysis of federal chronic absenteeism data.” Based on this research, authors Phyllis W. Jordan and Raegen Miller “offer a roadmap for leveraging ESSA to keep more students in school and on a path to academic success.”
