I have a confession: I like data.
I realize that most educators have a love-hate relationship with data. It’s come to mean punitive measures based on achievement as measured by test scores, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, data can mean how students fair on summative assessments, but it can be so much more. Becoming a data-driven school can be a years-long process, but being a data-driven decision maker can be you starting right now.
