SHEEO comments on the Obama Administration’s Blueprint for ESEA Reauthorization

We write on behalf of the association of State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) to comment on the proposed reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. We have reviewed the ESEA Reauthorization Principles and Recommendations prepared by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and we endorse their thoughtful recommendations. We join CCSSO in encouraging a federal law that sets broad goals, encourages policy innovation, and supports and becomes leverage for state policy leadership.
