TN Education and Equity Coalition Cites Assets & Shortcomings of Proposed ESSA Plan

The organization “applauded the state’s attention to historically underserved groups like racial minorities,” but raised concerns that some students may “fall through the cracks if schools aren’t held accountable for the performance of individual groups.”
