Six Teacher Council Members Launch ESSA PrinciplesNovember 21, 2016
Last week, six members of the Rodel Teacher Council released “Every Student Succeeds Act Recommendations and Guiding Principles for Policymakers,” which identifies areas where state and local leaders can continue to build on high standards, accountability systems and high-quality assessments. “Teachers should have a voice in the conversation, and we hope to both share our findings with legislators and help our peers get involved in the conversation,” says Karen Heller, one of the authors. Under the ESSA, “states have a responsibility to remain committed to the success of our students,” Delaware Gov. Jack Markell said recently.
