The Center for American Progress Action Fund discussed a new report, “A Way Forward”  outlining its recommendations for revising the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, or ESEA.

Regardless of when ESEA reauthorization takes place, CAP recommends specific actions to improve American schools including:

*Holding all schools accountable for getting results with all students
*Investing in teachers and principals so that they become more skilled and effective
*Making funding practices more fair and efficient so that every student gets a fair shot at having an effective teacher and adequate resources
*Targeting support to low-performing schools, including expanding learning time and providing nonacademic services that meet all student needs
*Investing in innovative practices that bring American schools into the 21st century
