In exchange, those states will have to agree to a series of reforms. But some experts say the law should be scrapped completely for models that don’t rely on standardized tests.

This is an expanded show based on the original episode covering when to use affect with an a and when to use effect with an e. I get asked whether to use affect or effect all the time and it is by far the most requested grammar topic, so I have a few mnemonics and a matching cartoon to help you remember. What Is the Difference Between Affectand Effect? Before we get to the memory trick though, I want to explain the difference between the two words. It’s actually pretty straightforward. The majority of the time you use affect with an a as a verb and effect with an e as a noun.
