Ahart’s Testimony Leads to Federal Change
Last May, Superintendent Tom Ahart testified to the U.S. Senate about the Every Students Succeeds Act (ESSA), the law that governs K-12 education policy, and the adverse impact a proposed part of the law could have, including forced teacher transfers. This week, the U.S. Department of Education announced it was dropping the proposal. Ahart served on a federal rule-making committee for ESSA.
