Louisiana State Chief on ESSA Plan, Implementation

September 29, 2018

Contributing for the Daily Advertiser, State Chief John White writes that Louisiana’s ESSA plan has “set expectations for all students that are as ambitious as expectations in any state in the country.” He also states that in the next two months, as the “state Department of Education and local school systems implement this new plan, these high expectations will be evident and on full display for communities.” However, White notes, it is “important that all involved—parents and educators, in particular—be aware of critical changes and of what they mean for the children and schools of our state.”
