Reports from Policy Analysts

Policy Analysis Initiative

A network of NCTE, CCCC, and TYCA volunteers track state policy developments impacting English language arts, English studies, literacy, and the humanities. These volunteers, one covering P12 education and one covering higher education in each state, provide other members with analyzed information about state policies. With this knowledge, educators can better participate in the policymaking process that affects them, their students, their institutions, and their communities.

Updates from the DC Office

Here is your opportunity to have a voice at the federal level. Comments are due today, May 25:

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is seeking your input on areas of the law on which we could provide non-regulatory guidance to assist states, districts and other grantees in understanding and implementing the new law.

We invite you to share your thoughts, comments, and suggestions on areas or specific new requirements of the ESSA that you think would benefit from such guidance. For example, ED seeks input on:

-ways to expand early learning;
-strategies to recruit, develop, and retain teachers and leaders (Title II);
-clarification of fiscal requirements;
-student support services (Title IV); and
-other areas where state and local agencies could benefit from additional guidance.

In addition, ED plans on developing guidance regarding students in foster care, homeless children and youth, and English Learners (Title III).

Please provide your input by sending an email message to, noting the topic area(s) in the subject line. Also, please include within the body of your email message, your name and, if applicable, the organization on behalf of which you are submitting comments. In order for your feedback to have the most impact, we encourage you to submit your comments by May 25, 2016.
