In this 3:38 video, Education Week’s Alyson Klein provides an overview of the changes brought by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which replaces No Child Left Behind (NCLB) in the 2017-18 school year. Responsibilities for performance, curriculum, and testing shift from the federal government to the states. For museums and historic sites, that means that your local school district may be adopting new standards of learning, which could prompt you to revise your school programs. States are required to adopt “challenging” academic standards, which could be Common Core but it isn’t required. For more details, take a look at Education Week’s written summary or the analysis in The Atlantic.
