Following ESEA Reauthorization?

Me neither.

Since the end of Iowa’s legislative session, I’ve been largely following local school issues which include the ongoing saga of crafting a long term master facilities plan that may close one or more local school buildings and the use of school buildings as polling places and whether neighborhood residents exercising the right to vote constitute a security threat to school children.

But, I see on Twitter that the U.S. House of Representatives is debating an ESEA reauthorization bill–HR 5, Student Success Act–today.  You can follow along on Twitter at #ESEA or check out coverage at EdWeek.

In other news I’m not closely following just yet, there are twenty-six applicants vying to be selected as the next Director of the Iowa Department of Education.  The Gazette has a list of applicants and application documents.
