Often people disagree about the facts. Data can help us find common ground. We think good data leads to good decision making. Our goal is to do more than just provide the numbers.
We want you to know where the numbers come from, and we want you to be able to find the data you need by state, school district (LEA), or school. Generally, where we provide information about a source, it is the source’s explanation of themselves, not our explanation of the source. You get to decide who to trust.
As our founder Ferrel Guillory notes, “Data without analysis is junk. Yes, you have to put the facts down. But you also have to array facts, connect dots, and examine time lines to make the facts mean something by which to drive action.”
What action do you want to drive?
