Parents and Advocates,
When your child takes a math test, they’re expected to show their work to get credit. Under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), states are also required to engage stakeholders, like you, in developing their state plans. Unfortunately, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) just released a new guide that doesn’t compel states to show their work on their process of engaging educators and parents.
If students are expected to show their work on assignments, shouldn’t states be held to the same standard when making decisions about our children’s education?
Send a comment to the U.S. Department of Education today and tell them: Stakeholder Engagement is CRITICAL, not optional!
We’re counting on you to hold states accountable and ensure parents, teachers and other stakeholders who are standing up for our children are being heard! The U.S. Department of Education needs to hear from you—and PTA members across the country—TODAY.
Submit your comment today and demand that a description of stakeholder engagement be included in the state education plans.
Thank you for your support,
National PTA Advocacy Team
