On state accountability plans, another test for Betsy DeVos

from U.S. News & World Report

Sept. 18 marked the final deadline by which nearly all states must have submitted a K-12 accountability plan to the Department of Education, marking a pivotal — if not yet final — step in how schools will operate under the new federal education law. The Every Student Succeeds Act, or ESSA, gives states new flexibility to create accountability systems that suit their unique needs.

Sixteen states and the District of Columbia already submitted plans in line with an earlier deadline, and 14 have been approved. Those not yet approved are Colorado, Massachusetts and Michigan. more
