Education Week Research Center (2017). Quality Counts 2017: Under Construction—Building on ESSA’s K-12 Foundation,. (Rapport no. 36 (16)). Bethesda (Maryland, U.S.A.) : Editorial Projects in Education (EPE).




Education Week today releases Quality Counts 2017: Under Construction—Building on ESSA’s K-12 Foundation, the latest installment of its long-running annual report on the state of education in the United States. The 2017 edition of Quality Counts takes a comprehensive look at the steps states are taking to turn the federal Every Student Succeeds Act’s blueprint into a finished structure. The challenge of doing it by the start of the 2017-18 school year will likely be compounded by leadership changes at both the White House and the U.S. Department of Education.

Many features of ESSA will be familiar from the No Child Left Behind Act, the previous version of the halfcentury old Elementary and Secondary Education Act. That includes mandatory state testing at certain grade levels, tagging and intervening in low-performing schools, and federal sign-off on state accountability plans.

But the new law, passed with bipartisan support in Congress just over a year ago, also offers the prospect of new flexibility and a lighter federal rein on how states shape the specifics in such contentious areas as teacher evaluation, how to fix low-performing schools, and assessment. In addition to traditional school quality accountability measures, the law requires all states to incorporate at least one “other indicator” into their systems, opening the door to a variety of options.

“ESSA’s implementation remains very much a work in progress at both the federal and state levels,” said
Mark W. Bomster, an assistant managing editor at Education Week and the report’s executive project editor. “Quality Counts 2017 examines a wide range of efforts now underway, as well as the capacity challenges state policymakers face and the views of education leaders at various levels about the new law, its challenges and opportunities.”

In addition to original reporting on the implementation of the new law in this postelection environment, Quality Counts 2017: Under Construction—Building on ESSA’s K-12 Foundation includes original
Education Week Research Center survey data on teacher and administrator perceptions of the new law. District leaders weighed in on their priorities for implementing the new law, while teachers shared their views about which "non-academic" factor should be included in state accountability systems and how those factors should be assessed.
