More than a quarter of schools could be flagged as in need of improvement under ESSA, experts say
from Education Week
Now that the Every Student Succeeds Act has been officially in place for a whole school year, states are beginning to release their lists of schools that need extra help. And there's a particular group of schools that experts are watching closely: Additional Targeted Schools. That's a wonky term for a particular set of schools that need improvement, but it's one to watch: It could end up describing anywhere from 30 to 70 percent of schools, according to preliminary observations by the Center for Assessment, a nonprofit that works with states on testing and accountability.
