Use Reliable Data to Inform and Improve Practice
Parents, the public, and policymakers deserve access to reliable and digestible student and school performance data. Some portion of state or local funding should consider student outcomes in order to move towards meaningful and sustainable student performance improvement. Meaningful and accurate data can be used to increase transparency and improve accountability.
