June 30, 2016

Education Secretary King urged hundreds of policymakers to engage stakeholders on the implementation of ESSA during this year’s Education Commission of the States’ National Forum on Education Policy. He underscored the importance of engagement efforts between state education departments and stakeholder groups as the accountability measures of ESSA are becoming finalized. Because of ESSA’s strong ties to civil rights advancement, King noted “The civil rights organizations need to be at the table until the very end.”
