Sen. Alexander Addresses Kentucky Education Committee

September 12, 2016

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) spoke at an Interim Joint Committee on Education in Kentucky on the role states play under ESSA. Alexander focused his comments on state control over federal control within the new legislation. As they draft their plans, he urged states to consult the “’new coalition’ of groups that backed ESSA and helped get it passed, from state leaders and local school boards to the national teachers’ unions.“
