Live Blog Chat: Quality Counts: What�s the Way Forward on Accountability?

In the 20th annual edition of Education Week’s Quality Counts, researchers take stock of where states stand when it comes to accountability. And we give readers a glimpse at how states and districts might gauge school progress, improve struggling schools, and approach assessment under the new Every Student Succeeds Act, the newest version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.
