Looking Ahead to the 116th Congress

January 2, 2019

The 74’s Carolyn Phenicie has “6 Education Predictions for the New Split Congress,” including some “ESSA changes.” The Education Department has “set a March 1, 2019, deadline for states to change their ESSA plans for how they’ll rate schools in the 2019-20 school year,” Phenicie reports. State chiefs “must consult with their governors and give communities a chance to comment.” With “several new governors who focused on K-12” taking office in 2019, changes to how the nation’s keystone education law is implemented in the states are likely.
