Eight states—including three of the nation's largest, California, Florida, and Michigan—are doing a "poor" job of looking out for vulnerable students in their plans to implement the Every Student Succeeds Act, according to an analysis by the National Urban League, a prominent civil rights group.

The analysis considers how plans in 36 states and the District of Columbia handle the performance of subgroups of students, including English-learners, students in special education, racial minorities, and poor students, and how states plan to support struggling schools and ensure that schools serving high-poverty populations get their fair share of resources.

Nineteen states and the District of Columbia are doing "sufficient" work, the analysis found. Another nine—Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island—were rated "excellent."
