If states are missing their own ESSA goals, what comes next?
from Education Week
One of the prominent elements of the Every Student Succeeds Act is the ability for states to set their own long-term goals for academic achievement, graduation rates, and English language proficiency. It marks a significant departure from the adequate yearly progress demands of ESSA's predecessor, the No Child Left Behind Act. But what if states aren't on track to meet those goals? According to the law, the goals based on graduation rates and student achievement on state exams must be "ambitious" although the law does not spell out exactly what that word means.
