Federal Flash: 9/15/17: ED’s Review of State ESSA Plans; Education Funding; & DeVos’s School Tour


The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has approved fourteen of the first seventeen plans that states submitted to the U.S. Department of Education in the spring.

Today’s Federal Flash examines the changes that were made to state plans as a result of ED’s review process, as well as the schedule for the thirty-four states yet to submit their plans.

It also covers Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s “Rethink School” tour and congressional action to fund the U.S. Department of Education and the rest of the federal government for the next fiscal year, which begins on October 1.
