Principal Concerns and ESSA

Principal Concerns and ESSA

May 15, 2019

Also in Education Week, Denisa R. Superville takes a look at a recent survey from MCH Strategic Data, which finds that the “issues that weigh heavily on principals’ minds remained more or less the same.” This year, though “the level of concern on the principals’ part shifted in some cases” to issues such as ESSA and technology. In comparison to previous years, “principals said they were less anxious about how the Every Student Succeeds Act will affect them and that they were confident about their knowledge of the 2015 law, with about 70 percent of principals saying they believed they had a strong grasp of how ESSA will affect school funding.”
