ESSA in the States: How Good is Your State’s Education Plan?

Under ESSA, states received flexibility to chart their own path to educational success, but they must submit a plan to the U.S. Department of Education explaining how they will reach these goals. To summarize the strengths—and shortcomings—for each state’s plan, the Alliance created a series of one-page quick-reference guides for anyone looking to determine how well a state’s plan will address the needs of its students.

These ESSA Equity Dashboards use a red-yellow-green light–system to rate state plans on several indicators, including long-term goals, accountability provisions, and school rating systems.

Read more about the ESSA Equity Dashboards in the press release or access your state’s dashboard via the list below:

Note: All4Ed is updating the state ESSA equity dashboards as the U.S. Department of Education approves states’ plans.
