A New Way to View ESEA Reauthorization Efforts

ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) came up with a new chart (PDF) to help you make sense of pending legislative efforts to reform the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

The tool provides a detailed side-by-side comparison of the current law, the changes proposed by each of the bills passed by the respective Senate and House education committees, and the Obama administration's waiver plan.

It's organized into five major categories (standards/assessments, accountability, teacher and leader effectiveness, school improvement, and funding).

No one has time, especially is school is winding down, but that's not an excuse to be uninformed, so check out this handy chart from an education-minded organization.
