ESEA Waivers Need to Make All Students Reaching Potential A Priority

COPAA, along with eleven education groups today sent Education Secretary Arne Duncan a letter urging him to make students with disabilities, minority and low-income students, and English language learners more of a priority when the Education Department releases its waiver renewal guidance this fall.

We strongly urge the U.S. Department of Education (ED) to correct course and ensure that in the next round of waiver renewals, states must make the achievement and attainment of each group of students count in ratings for all schools. Moreover, underperformance for any groups of students must trigger meaningful supports and interventions.
