    The Education Trust today releases a report on trends in state ESSA plans, saying:

    “At The Education Trust we’ve been closely following the decisions states are making in their new accountability systems. Our analysis of state ESSA plans focused tightly on three questions we believe are especially important in determining whether a plan is likely to promote opportunity and improve outcomes for all groups of students:

    Are states keeping student learning front and center?
    Do school ratings reflect how schools are doing for all groups of students?
    Is the state being honest about which schools need to take steps to improve for one or more student groups?

    What we found is not encouraging. For all the lip-service given to the importance of equity in ESSA, too many state leaders have taken a pass on clearly naming and acting on schools’ underperformance for traditionally underserved students.”

    The report is attached and available at https://edtrust.org/resource/trends-state-essa-plans/
