Now that ESSA is here, I'm wondering how it will affect contract negotiations. What language in ESSA will find it's way to new contracts forged by teachers and administrations/school committees? How can these teams work together to build in language that empowers what teachers can do to support student learning and experience in school? I'll be thinking about this as I read through ESSA language this summer. Please share your thoughts with me in this regard if you're interested as I know I have a lot to learn.
