Phillips-Krivickas, Karla – State Education Standard, 2022

Peyton, David; Acosta, Kelly – State Education Standard, 2022
Teacher shortages are often viewed as a national issue and through a national lens.

Fagan, Drew S.; Herrera, Luis Javier Pentón – State Education Standard, 2022

Basham, James D. – State Education Standard, 2022
A central lesson driven home by the struggles of schools around the globe during the pandemic is that education systems are inadequate to meet society's future needs, according to James D. Basham. He believes it is time for systems that are learner-centered and flexible enough to meet the needs of all students--from those with disabilities and…

Exley, Woody – State Education Standard, 2021
Over the last few years, Texas, Connecticut, and California have led the way in approving courses in ethnic studies to provide high school students with engaging, culturally relevant instruction. Texas blazed the trail in 2018 when its state board of education approved an elective course in Mexican American studies. Then in April 2020, the board…

Patrick, Susan – State Education Standard, 2021
Teaching and learning are changing drastically in the wake of COVID-19, and once-skeptical K-12 system and school leaders are increasingly responding to students' academic needs with competency-based learning models. State boards of education and other state leaders should examine the rationale and structures that underpin these student-centered…

Tooley, Melissa; Hood, Joseph – State Education Standard, 2021
There are few areas where American teachers are as united as they are in their dissatisfaction with their professional learning and advancement opportunities. The lack of meaningful offerings affects states' ability to attract, develop, and retain strong teachers, which in turn impedes schools' ability to help students fulfill their potential.…

Amundson, Kristen; Ko, Andrew – State Education Standard, 2021
The COVID-19 school closures offered states and local school districts an opportunity to reimagine education--to tailor it to meet students' needs, support teachers and aid their professional development, keep schools safe, and better support families. Thus far, not a lot of imagination is on display. In particular, schools are not taking…

Bradford, Derrell – State Education Standard, 2021
The American public education system is already a school choice system, which is navigated in four ways. Families are lucky (as the author ultimately was, having received a scholarship from grades 7-12 to an independent, all-boys school just outside the city). They are rich enough to pay private school tuition, or they are able to leverage the…

Smith, Hal – State Education Standard, 2021

COVID-19 has only made starker and more urgent the unfinished work of ensuring that all students receive an excellent education. It is time to do…

O'Keefe, Bonnie; Rotherham, Andrew; Schiess, Jennifer O'Neal – State Education Standard, 2021
COVID-19 gave the country a crash course in public health data. It underscored the value of data that can support well-informed, timely action in a crisis. Good data are just as important for education systems in crisis. Schools and districts have been struggling to reach and educate students safely. Students who were disproportionately…
