This hearing explores the accountability rule that the Department of Education proposed on May 31st. This goes to the heart of the law to fix No Child Left Behind. The Federal Government decided that math and reading test results would determine whether schools and teachers were succeeding or failing. The two main concerns of this hearing are: (1) Does the proposed accountability rule actually get the Federal Government back in the business of setting State academic standards?; and (2) Does the proposed accountability rule get the Federal Government back in the business of deciding which schools are succeeding or failing? This hearing transcript provides a prepared statement from witness John King, Secretary, U.S. Department of Education. This is followed by additional materials, namely Ensuring Equity in ESSA: The Role of N-Size in Subgroup Accountability, by Alliance For Excellent Education; and Responses by Secretary King to questions of: Senator Alexander, Senator Enzi, Senator Collins, Senator Hatch, Senator Sanders, and Senator Warren.
