The Effects of Recent State Board of Education Elections on ESSA Plans

November 18, 2016

The National Association of State Boards of Education issued a policy update on the effects of recent state board of education elections on ESSA plans. According to NASBE, due to the “uncertain trajectory of federal rule making around ESSA” and unknown state election results, it is “unclear how state boards will respond and what new approaches they may take.” NASBE argued that members will need to make “important changes right away” due to ESSA’s scheduled implementation for 2017-2018.
