Every Student Succeeds Act
Our young people must have the same competitive advantages as students in other countries. ESSA Title IV A will help ensure teachers and leaders have the skills and tools to use technology effectively to improve instruction and personalize learning.
Higher Education Innovation
The Department of Education is inviting applications for the Educational Quality through Innovative Partnerships (EQUIP) experiment. EQUIP will accelerate and evaluate innovation through partnerships between colleges and universities and non-traditional providers of education, such as intensive “boot camps” building skills in particular fields, specific programs awarding certificates aligned to employer needs, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
A partnership of postsecondary institutions, one or more non-traditional education providers, and a quality assurance entity will ensure transparency of student outcomes in learning and employment, and provide tools for ongoing quality improvement. Eligible programs will lead to a degree or certificate, build students’ transferable academic credits, and provide students with the ever-changing skills they need for today’s economy.
