Bell-Ellwanger: Call to Action — the Data Moment Has Arrived. Education Advocates Must Seize It to Improve Learning for the Students of Today and Tomorrow

In this op-ed for The 74, DQC President and CEO Jenn Bell-Ellwanger challenges advocates think bigger about their data work. She argues that it’s time to pivot from tinkering around the margins on data to thinking big about how to begin to use new information and tools to solve the nation’s most complex and vexing problems.
