The Every Student Succeeds Act
After passing in the Senate and House, the new federal education bill, Every Student Succeeds Act, was signed into law by President Obama on Wednesday.
While it remains to be seen exactly what impact the bill will have on public education in Massachusetts, it will clearly have an impact. For more information on the bill, check out the US Department of Education’s ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) webpage.
On November 17, the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to reimagine one of the major benchmarks used to assess student achievement. A new assessment would incorporate elements of the PARCC in a brand new MCAS test.
