Revised 115th Legislative information to be posted soon!
NABSE's Legislative and Advocacy Priorities for 116th Congress.
NABSE believes ..... that providing flexibility in developing assessments that are validated and reliable as part of their state plan for setting standards.....is simply the right thing to do. We recognize that the Constitution ultimately holds states responsible for the education of its citizens.
We request, however, in the reauthorization of ESEA that Congress fund the state's ability to determine how well their students are doing through accountability measures that are multiple in nature; that are reliable; and that are research based.
Multiple indicators of school performance, along with a strong accountability anchor, allow districts and states to move beyond equalizing test scores and to examine other indicators so that educational equity is part of a World Class Education system.
Funding Equity for Children of Poverty
Demonstration Program/Models for Addressing the School-to-Prison-Pipeline
