Progressive Policy Institute’s ESSA Event Focuses on Importance of High Standards

October 19, 2016

The Progressive Policy Institute hosted a panel discussion on the importance of implementing meaningful academic achievement standards for students and schools under ESSA. The panel featured David Osborne, senior fellow and director of the Progressive Policy Institute’s Reinventing America’s School Project, as well as the Fordham Institute’s Mike Petrilli, Foundation for Excellence in Education’s Claire Voorhees, and Center for American Progress’ Laura Jimenez. Overall, all of the panelists agreed that ESSA provides an opportunity for states to “get to 21st century standards” by leaving behind the use of “20th century measurements and requirements.”
