Ruff, Ryan Richard – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2019

Hess, Frederick M.; McShane, Michael Q. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Drawing upon their new edited volume of essays looking back on the school reforms of the Bush and Obama years, the authors explain just how few of those reforms went according to plan.

Pak, Katie; Desimone, Laura M. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Under both No Child Left Behind and the Every Student Succeeds Act, school leaders have been mandated to employ data-driven decision-making (DDDM) to diagnose student needs, implement targeted supports, and design school improvements.

Bae, Soung – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2018
The challenges facing our children in the 21st century are rapidly changing. As a result, schools bear a greater responsibility to prepare students for college, career, and life and must be held accountable for more than just testing and reporting on a narrow set of outcomes aimed at minimum levels of competency. Thus, scholars, educators, and…

Wong, Vivian C.; Wing, Coady; Martin, David; Krishnamachari, Anandita – Educational Researcher, 2018
When No Child Left Behind (NCLB) became law in 2002, it was viewed as an effort to create uniform standards for students and schools across the country. More than a decade later, we know surprisingly little about how states actually implemented NCLB and the extent to which state implementation decisions managed to undo the centralizing objectives…

Slavin, Robert E. – State Education Standard, 2018
What matters most in education is what teachers do in the classroom to enhance student achievement. For this reason, state and district leaders must take steps to ensure that principals and teachers have effective textbooks, software, professional development, and programs. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) moves away from the…

Texas, with over 11% of the total identified gifted population in the United States, state funding for gifted, and incentivized…
