The 74 Highlights FL’s ESSA Plan Process

September 21, 2017

The 74 highlights that Florida “may be trying to skirt the law when it comes to its public education plan,” which could “mean a delay or denial in federal education funding, an unscheduled overhaul of Florida’s school grades system, or a wink and a nod from a Trump Administration which may not be very keen on enforcing the law.” ESSA “says each state has to measure certain things for specific groups of students, but Florida officials “initially wanted to ignore that requirement,” arguing that they “wanted to keep doing what they had been doing: measuring the lowest-performing 25 percent of students regardless of their race, income level, or disability status.”
