Finding the Data

Education data are critical to understanding whether or not America’s children are getting the education they deserve and the education that will prepare them to be successful. Transparency in education data can help stakeholders celebrate well-deserved school successes and inform conversations about efforts to improve our schools.

Finding the Data : A State-by-State Assessment of Education Data Transparency provides a systematic and deeper understanding of how state education agencies compare across a set of 3 broad dimensions of education transparency: accessibility and access, quality, and disaggregation for key student groups. Parents, advocacy organizations, researchers, and other stakeholders need this information to understand the performance and quality of schools in their state.
