April 20, 2017

According to Wade Henderson, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and The Leadership Conference Education Fund, the recent rollback of the ESSA regulations “has led to more confusion and uncertainty for states who are in the middle of drafting their accountability plans, attempting to comply with the law, and deciding how best to support their students.” Henderson emphasizes the responsibility of the Dept. of Education to ensure state accountability plans are putting the needs of children Henderson also encourages states to do the “right thing,” and “the U.S. Department of Education holding them accountable when they fail to do so.”
