Louise Wrege reports for the Herald Palladium that Michigan “now has two versions of statewide school accountability – one from the Michigan Department of Education and the other mandated by the Legislature.” The Michigan Department of Education plan under ESSA “received federal approval for its plan in November 2017 after more than a year of development.” Meanwhile, the “Legislature approved its plan during a chaotic lame duck session in December, when elected officials voted on more than 300 bills in less than two weeks.”
