Professor Kenneth Wong's co-authored commentary, "States May Not Make Huge Changes Under ESSA. But What Will They Do to Promote Equity and Opportunity for Poor and Minority Students?", has been published in The 74, a non-partisan news site covering education in America.
In the commentary, Dr. Wong and co-authors Martin Orland and James Cibulka explore the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the newest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. The authors acknowledge the various questions, fears, and hopes surrounding this initial rollout of ESSA and remind us of the importance of equal educational opportunity for every student, no matter how we as a nation pursue that goal.
