The new "evidence-based" provisions in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) are not just a "search-and-replace" version of the "scientifically based" definition in No Child Left Behind. They are new, more flexible provisions that allow evidence to be considered within the context of local needs. How can education leaders at the state and local levels leverage these provisions to get the results they want and need?
On December 13 at 2:00pm ET, join a Learning First Alliance/Knowledge Alliance webinar exploring this question. Education Northwest's Steve Fleischman and Caitlin Scott will discuss their recent report, "Better Evidence, Better Choices, Better Schools: State Support for Evidence-Based School Improvement and the Every Student Succeeds Act," in a conversation moderated by Learning First Alliance Executive Director Richard Long. Panelists will also take questions on this important issue.
