ESSA Wonk Alert: Can ED Set a Maximum ‘N’ Size? And What Should It Be?

The U.S. Department of Education's proposed accountability regulations for the Every Student Succeeds Act would let too many English-language learners, students in special education, minorities, and disadvantaged slip through the cracks, according to a report for the Alliance for Excellent Education, an advocacy organization. The proposed regulations allow states to pick any "n" size, or minimum number of students from a particular group that a school would have to have for that group to count for accountability purposes. But the draft rules say if it states want to go above 30, they must justify it. (Thirty is currently a middle-of-the-road "n" size according to this report from the department.)
