The  Story – John King and the USDOE (US Dept. of Education) have written regulations to carry out ESSA EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT).  As we suspected he is attempting to use the USDOE to overstep their authority onto the states and go beyond the scope and intent of ESSA . His plan FORCES SCHOOLS:  to punish schools where opt-out rates exceeds 5%; to base school evaluation on Math and English test scores. It requires states to develop rating systems that give a score of letter grade to each school... nonsense that has already  proven to  destroy  public education under th eNCLB act. There's more, so go to the link. BATTS need to send in recommendations to the USDOE before August 1st, we need to tell our federal lawmakers to tell John King to back off, and we need to create ESSA implementation teams in our schools.
