Federal Flash: 4/7/17: States Submit ESSA Plans; How Trump’s Immigration Policies Impact Education
This week, states began submitting their plans to develop accountability and improvement systems under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). We’re reading those plans and we have unearthed some promising policies—and worrisome ones—that states are including.

We cover these topics and more in today’s Federal Flash.
