The Department of Education passes along rigid ESSA feedback to states
from Education World
Tensions have become even more flared between the Department of Education and states regarding their plans for the Every Student Succeeds Act. Both House Democrats and Republicans had strong objections and concern for Betsy DeVos and her team, who pledged to pass more control into the hands of the states regarding education policy decisions under federal K-12 law. The District of Columbia and sixteen states so far have submitted their plans for implementing ESSA and nine have heard back with letters of criticism that state leaders say goes beyond ESSA bounds.
