California became one of the final states in the nation to receive approval for its Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan in July, ending a round of negotiations with the U.S. Department of Education over topics like accountability and the tracking of underperforming schools. In this edition of Policy Matters, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson joins Chief Deputy Superintendent Glen Price and Federal Policy Liaison Marguerite Ries to discuss the state’s plan and how it will be implemented in the “California way,” buoying ongoing efforts to support low-income students, English language learners, foster children, and more.
