A recent iNACOL report, Meeting The Every Student Succeeds Act’s Promise: State Policy to Support Personalized Learning, provides concrete, actionable recommendations for state policymakers to support the transformation of K-12 education to close learning gaps and address inequities in the system.

View this archived webinar to explore the findings in this new report and hear state leaders discuss how to put these ideas into action. Together with their communities, state policymakers can set a new vision of high expectations for all students and foster a culture of continuous improvement and innovation for equity.

States have a historic opportunity under the new federal education law, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), to transform K-12 education and redefine goals of K-12 education systems toward a broader definition of student success.

What are the opportunities for states under ESSA and how can state leaders leverage them?  What education do we need for the 21st century? How do we think about advancing a comprehensive statewide policy approach to ensure every student develops the knowledge, skills and competencies they will need and can access powerful, personalized learning opportunities?
