DQC- State Action 1: Link Data Systems

Each month the EDIS newsletter will examine one of the ten State Actions from the Data Quality Campaign (DQC), "Data for Action 2013," report. Action 1 asks states if they, "Link state K-12 data systems with early learning, postsecondary education, workforce, social services, and other critical agencies." There was an increase in the number of states who fulfill this criteria from 11 in 2011 to 18 in 2013. The biggest gap in the P-20 pipeline remains between K-12 and workforce data systems where only 19 states currently demonstrate a link in information.
