In about six weeks, you will join Education Policy Fellows from across the country for an exploration of education policy – the issues, the discussions, the actions – at the federal/national level. The 2014 Washington Policy Seminar will focus on the twin goals of education equity and educational excellence. To give you a head start in preparing for the policy conversations and actions (or inactions) at the national level, the March LSS provides background information on the Commission on Equity and Excellence and its report, For Each and Every Child: A Strategy for Education Equity and Excellence, and a history lesson: 50 years of federal efforts to reform education.
