What ESSA Means for Schools, Systems, and States

What ESSA Means for Schools, Systems, and States

September 19, 2016

In Education Week, Frederick Hess, director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, and Max Eden, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, argue that neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton are putting forward “principled conservative leadership” when it comes to education. The authors argued that “more can and should be done,” and outline ways that ESSA could improve the K-12 education system by removing regulations, allowing flexible funding, encouraging education research, and deregulating vendor agreements. Hess and Eden are releasing a book, The Every Student Succeeds Act: What It Means for Schools, Systems, and States, later this year.
