Every Student Succeeds Act Video

How Does ESSA Impact Education Product and Service Providers?

June 12, 2018 5:26

The Every Student Succeeds Act gives states and districts more flexibility when it comes to school improvement, but they must back it up with evidence. What does that mean for those who are not necessarily practitioners, but are providing a role in support services and products? Sean Cavanagh, senior editor of EdWeek Market Brief, talks about the questions surrounding the business and private sector opportunities that ESSA offers as states, districts, and schools seek to benefit from the new law’s flexibility. This video was filmed following Education Week’s virtual summit on ESSA, where online participants submitted their questions about the upcoming implementation of the new federal law.
