Data in service for others

Data in service for others | Data Driven Decision Making | Scoop.it

It was 3 a.m. and there was still work to be done. Or maybe it always feels that way to anyone working in the world of algorithms and code. A group of data experts — some from government agencies, others from online media — had been hacking away by the glow of their laptops for the past 18 hours. Only this time it wasn’t building digital graphics for the Education Department or analyzing poverty data for the Census Bureau.

They were working for nonprofits that could not afford their services.(Read more...)

Rethinking School

Rethinking School | Data Driven Decision Making | Scoop.it

In 2008 the Stanford economist Eric Hanushek developed a new way to examine the link between a country’s GDP and the academic test scores of its children. He found that if one country’s scores were only half a standard deviation higher than another’s in 1960, its GDP grew a full percentage point faster in every subsequent year through 2000.

Using Hanushek’s methods, McKinsey & Company has estimated that if the U.S. had closed the education achievement gap with better-performing nations, GDP in 2010 could have been 8% to 14%—$1.2 trillion to $2.1 trillion—higher. The report’s authors called this gap “the economic equivalent of a permanent national recession.”
