Education Commission of the States (ECS) was created by states, for states, in 1965. ECS tracks state policy trends, translates academic research, provides unbiased advice and creates opportunities for state leaders to learn from one another.

 

A quick peek at their website will show the incredible wealth of information that is generated by ECS: http://www.ecs.org/html/aboutECS/home_aboutECS.htm

 

We are fortunate to have Jeremy Anderson, ECS President, visiting Hawaii on Monday, March 9 to share insights on educational trends across the country. Specifically, he will be speaking on the status of Common Core and how various states are implementing teacher evaluation systems.
