The Aspen Institute Education & Society Program and the Council of Chief State School Officers released a set of recommendations for state education chiefs on improving equity for students under ESSA. According to Education Week, the guidelines are a “culmination of months of work by state chiefs, district leaders, civil rights advocates, and others.” The report outlined 10 areas where stakeholders should focus – and “include tangible ideas like collecting better data on student outcomes, improving access to early childhood education, and seeking to reorganize and diversify state education agencies.”
