State ESSA Plan Receives Good Reviews from Two Outlets

December 17, 2017

The Union Bulletin’s editorial board found two recent reviews of the state’s ESSA plan “encouraging.” The Thomas B. Fordham Institute, found, “Washington’s new system for how to evaluate schools is one of the best in the nation.” Additionally, Check State Plans found that, “Washington has set ambitious goals for its students that other states should emulate.” While the state is waiting on federal approval – the board saw this feedback as “a positive sign.”
