Principles for Education Data Legislation

The Data Quality Campaign has tracked and reported on education data legislation in all 50 states and the District of Columbia since 2014. State legislators have the opportunity to create and support legislation that positions data as a tool to help decisionmakers at all levels take action to support student success. Through tracking these important data-focused actions, DQC has identified common elements of data-related legislation that successfully enables those who need data to make decisions that serve students and further policy goals. This checklist can serve as a guide to crafting legislation that addresses education data.
