ednext-podcast-feb17-hess-essaThe Every Student Succeeds Act, the federal education law passed in 2015, is part of what would seem to be a dying breed: major pieces of domestic policy legislation passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. How did ESSA come to be? And what does it mean for American students?

In this episode of the podcast, Marty West is joined by Rick Hess, co-author of a new book, The Every Student Succeeds Act: What It Means for Schools, Systems, and States.

An excerpt from the book, “The Long Path to ESSA,” is now available from Education Next.

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, SoundcloudStitcher and here every Wednesday.
