Marty Blank, president of IEL and director of the Coalition for Community Schools, and Kent McGuire (CO EPFP 80-81), president of the Southern Education Foundation and chair of the IEL Board of Directors, co-authored an Education Week commentary on the importance of stakeholder engagement in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

Focusing on the idea that "people will support what they create," the commentary offers principles for stakeholder engagement and the stakeholders who should be engaged in ESSA implementation.

"What is most vital," they write, "is that education leaders at all levels recognize and act on the belief that people will support what they create—that engaging an array of stakeholders in an inclusive and sustained way will not only lead to better ESSA plans with strong public support, but also to the success of more young people."
