Dakarai Aarons and Elizabeth Dabney of Data Quality Campaign will identify the various state and local government agencies storing education data that are vital for your reporting. In many states, the state school board, department of education, mayor’s office, higher-education advisory board, and other agencies keep useful public information – and it’s on the reporter to know where to look.
This webinar may also give participants tips on data sets to download and bring to the data workshop at Bothell. Dabney will provide a spotlight on five states that demonstrate the range of access to data states provide. Hint: some states do it better. Aarons will offer tips to mine education data in surprising agencies. A question and answer session will follow.
