Norville, Valerie – State Education Standard, 2020
Every student deserves arts instruction for its own sake, as an essential ingredient to a well-rounded education.

Tuttle, Lynn – State Education Standard, 2020
In its four years of life, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) has blazed new pathways for policy and funding in K-12 arts education.

The indicator currently has no weight in Illinois's accountability…

Darling-Hammond, Linda; DePaoli, Jennifer – State Education Standard, 2020

Kraft, Mathew A.; Falken, Grace T. – State Education Standard, 2020
Over the past decade, education reformers have focused much of their attention on raising teacher quality. This focus on individual teachers has caused policymakers to lose sight of the importance of the organizational contexts in which teachers work and students learn. The quality of a school's teaching staff is greater than the sum of its parts.…

Osher, David; Neiman, Sam; Williamson, Sandra – State Education Standard, 2020

Harper, Kristen – State Education Standard, 2020
Over the past decade, states and school districts have acted on research findings that the use of out-of-school suspension has run counter to the goals of education equity and achievement.
