The opening chapter of Issues in Education is a primer on existing STEM education policy issues and programs. Chapter 2 focuses on early observations on changes some states are making to their K-12 accountability systems in reaction to the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA). The benefits and risks of AI in classrooms, including the impact of AI on issues such as student data privacy, teacher preparation, and technology development and procurement are reviewed in chapter 3. Chapter 4 examines (1) what is known about suspensions and expulsions in D.C. charter schools, and (2) to what extent PCSB oversees charter schools’ use of suspensions and expulsions. The extent to which (1) school districts are testing for, finding, and remediating lead in drinking water is discussed in chapter 5. Chapter 6 provides a detailed discussion of each of the four Title I-A formulas used to determine grants under The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
