Rep. Roby Holds Meeting with State Superintendents

July 15, 2016

U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) held a meeting with state superintendents last week. Of note, it was reported that local leaders expressed “concerns about the Dept. of Education adhering to the strict state authority provisions during the critical implementation process.” As a result, Roby wrote to the Governor’s ESSA Implementation Committee asking for feedback on this issue stating, “Should federal partners you work with in the implementation process fail to adhere to this clear directive from Congress, I want to know about it.” Her full letter to the Committee is included in the report.
