Federal Actions to Make Data Work for Students

Federal Recommendations ThumbnailFederal policymakers have a unique role in creating a culture that values and uses data for continuous improvement and that empowers families, educators, and education leaders with the high-quality information they need and deserve to make great decisions for students. Federal policymakers must help develop the policies, guidance, resources, collaboration, and expertise needed to reduce state and local data burden, promote purposeful cross-sector and cross-state data linkages, and shine a light on promising practices and important skills. Federal leaders must support these nine recommendations to make data work for students across the country.
