August 30, 2019

According to KUAC, last week, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was in Alaska, where she discussed ESSA (among other topics) with state education stakeholders. Hosted by the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce, the round-table discussion focused on workforce development. At the event, participants “talked about the benefits of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act, known as ESSA, more federal grants for STEM training and the new computer science standards the state just set.” Additionally, “tribal leaders reminded the Secretary that the Every Student Succeeds Act…requires Tribal Consultation.”
