State education officials say they’ll spend the next 18 months figuring out what a new federal education law requires.
President Obama signed the law replacing the controversial No Child Left Behind statute.
The new law is dubbed the Every Student Succeeds Act.
It gives more power back to the states for accountability, teacher evaluations, and how to push poorly performing schools to improve.
Speaking to the state board of Education, Department of Education Director Ryan Wise says there’s a lot in the bill to digest.
