Meredith Fergus, OHE researcher, told members of the House Redesign Caucus today that she "is very excited" about the fact that the first data from the Statewide Longitudinal Education Data System (SLEDS)will be available soon.
SLEDS is a joint project of OHE, MDE and DEED, designed to help the state identify the best pathways to success in education and the workforce. During times of limited resources, targeting investments to areas where they can have the most positive impact makes good sense.
The members of the Redesign Caucus seemed to agree that yes, data can be exciting!
More to come.
