What does ESSA mean for OFT members?

Like parents, teachers believe that there is so much more to children than test scores. We are frustrated by a testing culture that ties our hands. We want our students to feel the joy of learning. Find out how we can get there with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
