Schools and districts are gearing up for the Every Student Succeeds Act’s implementation as the new federal law makes its debut this fall.

States and the federal government are still figuring out the balance on issues like school accountability, federal oversight, civil rights, and using data to turn around low-performing schools. Lead federal policy reporter Alyson Klein weighs in. 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.
