With the passage of our new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act, states are working with diverse stakeholders to design their state plans. Join us for a conversation on where states are in their planning, what they see as the biggest opportunities and challenges, and what the recent national elections might mean for the implementation of this new law.
