School improvement, career tech education a priority, King tells mayors
from Education Week
Acting U.S. Secretary of Education John King said that he plans to spend at least part of his time in office helping to revamp career and technical education and shining a spotlight on smart improvement strategies for low-performing schools and struggling populations. Why is this important? The brand-new Every Student Succeeds Act calls for states and districts to use so-called "evidence based" interventions in schools that are seriously underperforming or where certain groups of students are struggling — and it expressly prohibits the education secretary from dictating interventions for states and districts.
