The Every Student Succeeds Act reshapes the relationship between the federal government and states when it comes to education policy.

State policy reporter Daarel Burnette II discusses what lies ahead at the state level. 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.
