Using Research To Improve Education Under The Every Student Succeeds Act

This Brookings Institution post looks at the Every Student Succeeds Act and how it requires that states and districts use evidence-based interventions to support school improvement. But educators have noted that this kind of research is not as useful as it could be because it is conducted in settings that may differ from theirs. Another kind of research — known as improvement science — operates in local contexts of districts and schools, but cannot be done everywhere due to lack of personnel and funding. This post looks at these issues and how to address the issue of limited resources.

Here's a link to the full text of the bill, including all 131 sections.

While not light reading (but great for an April Fools joke on your class), it can be useful to show how complex the work of Congress and the government has become and why it's so hard to "just get things done".

The bill includes everything, from ...

  • Magnet Schools Assistance (Sections 4401-4409),

  • Report On Native American Language Medium Education (Section 6005),
