Have states taken steps toward fostering a culture of effective data use? The Data Quality Campaign will answer that question with the release of the eighth Data for Action 2012, an annual analysis of states’ progress implementing the 10 State Actions to Ensure Effective Data Use. Last year's showed that states had the capacity to empower education stakeholders with data, but they hadn't yet. Initial findings this year reveal that states are making progress, but have not created the conditions to change the culture of education data. Join this specially-tailored webinar for Strive Network sites to learn about what is happening in your state, resources that are available to support your work and how you can get involved in this effort to improve effective data use.
