New Policy Brief on Leveraging ESSA

April 12, 2017

Higher Ed for Higher Standards, the Council of Chief State School Officers, National Association of System Heads, and State Higher Education Executive Officers Association released a new policy brief as part of their “Leveraging ESSA” series. The brief identifies “clear strategies for developing aligned K-12” and “higher education goals and outlines how states can use those goals to drive strategic actions to support all youth on their path to attain a postsecondary credential of value.” The brief also highlights Tennessee’s efforts with the “Drive to 55 Alliance,” which is designed to “help generate greater private sector awareness and ownership for meeting the state’s goals.”
