Betsy DeVos Releases 'Parent Guide' to ESSA Report Cards
Education Week – November 7, 2018
U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and her team have created a guide to help parents make better sense of the maze of data that states are required to put in their new report cards under the Every Student Succeeds Act.
DeVos previously put out a "Parent's Guide" to the law itself.
"Parents deserve to know what is happening in their child's school," DeVos said in a statement. "They should not have to parse through a 500-page legal document to understand how a law or policy affects their children's education. This guide demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing parents with user-friendly tools and the information necessary to make informed decisions. Informed parents become empowered and engaged parents who are able to better advocate on behalf of their children."
